Nonlinear refractive-index changes induced by carrier injection in an InSb étalon

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We report the bistable switching of an InSb étalon in a novel mode of operation where the necessary changes in refractive index are induced by minority carrier injection through a p-n junction. Refractive-index changes of ∼10−5 are achieved using 3-V pulses. Switch on and switch off characteristics and projected performance are discussed.
