Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Experimental and theoretical analysis of an 850 nm-VCSOA all-optical inverter is reported. The performance of the inverter shows low switching power requirements, high extinction ratio and fast speed operation in the order of several Gbits/sec.
