Optical Circuit for Waveform-synthesis with Utilizing both GaAs- and Si-Optoelectronic Switches

This paper presents an optical-waveform synthesizer as one of the applications of optical bistable devices. This device is advantageous in terms of faster operation in which width of each pulse obtained is down to the order of subnanosecond, because this device employs both GaAs- and Si-optoelectronic switches as photodetector. Optical pulse shaping as a preliminary experiment is also described.
