Abstract

A new form of ultrafast bistable polarization switching in twin-stripe injection lasers has been observed. For the first time, triggering between bistable states has been achieved by injecting light from a neighboring laser integrated on the same chip. Ultrafast switching times of 250 ps have been measured (detector limited).
