Abstract"An optical waveform can be driven by an electrical signal using the novel physics and device structure of a "toggling" gain modulator. Operation over 100 GHz is anticipated with high extinction. Toggling modulators are expected to dissipate little power,tolerate wide variation in operating temperature, and avoid amplified spontaneous emission noise. Toggling gain modulators should enable a new class of ultra-fast gated optoelectronic devices, including modulation of CW or pulsed sources, opticalswitching, gated detection, and interprocessor communications devices."
