Abstract

Two active Mach-Zehnder interferometers are integrated in a monolithic InP/InGaAsP photonic integrated circuit. Together they form a crucial component for optical signal processing: an optical memory element or set-reset flip-flop. The switching time for this initial device is approximately 200 ps. The photonic integrated circuit contains active and passive optical components, including electro-optic phase shifters.
