    Optical bistability has been observed for the first time in a room-temperature InGaAsP/InP amplifier. Switching occurred at an optical input power of about 3 µW, corresponding to a change in the refractive index of 5 × 10[sup -4]. The results are discussed in terms of a light-induced...

    Pulses of 3–9 ps duration at wavelengths between 1.22 and 1.27 μm are amplified by a 1.3 μm InGaAsP traveling-wave optical amplifier. The gain decreases linearly with the output energy by up to 2.6 dB at the highest available energies. The output energy and peak power of the...

    We describe a unique phenomenon occurring in InAs/InP quantum dash amplifiers: a nearly instantaneous gain response taking place across the entire inhomogeneously broadened gain spectrum. The phenomenon is induced by a 100-150 fs pulse and is observable using multiwavelength pump probe...

    We measured the gain dynamics at the ground-state transition in an electrically pumped InP/AlGaInP quantum-dot optical amplifier at room temperature by femtosecond differential transmission. The gain shows an ultrafast recovery within 200 fs, even faster than in state-of-the-art InAs/GaAs...

    Direct measurements of the surface recombination velocity (SRV) on etched InP(110) and at its interfaces with various metals deposited by thermal evaporation have been performed using ultrafast time-resolved photoluminescence. The results show that the original InP low SRV is retained when these...

    Photoluminescence efficiency recovery in 1-MeV electron irradiated InP due to photon excitation is demonstrated. Photoluminescence intensity recovers with incident excitation power in an exponential-like manner and its recovery rate increases when temperature rises. These phenomena are explained...
