ABSTRACT
The speed of a GaAs-AlGaAs optical logic gate is time resolved using a 100-fs laser system. It shows that the gating operation can be performed in [bar_over_tilde:_approx._equal_to]1 ps, the fastest reported for such a low-energy optical device. The lowest incident switching for such a device is <=3 pJ.
