ABSTRACT
Monolithic optical logic devices 1.5–5 μm across are defined by ion-beam assisted etching through a GaAs/AlAs Fabry–Perot structure grown by molecular beam epitaxy. They show reduced energy requirements (more than an order of magnitude smaller than the unetched heterostructure), uniform response over small arrays, negligible crosstalk at 3 μm center-center spacing, ∼150 ps recovery time, and thermal stability at 82 MHz operating frequency. All experiments were performed at room temperature.

    A new Raman line was found on ultrahigh AlAs-GaAs superlattices with an excitation energy near the band gap. The excitation profile revealed that the intensity of the new line was enhanced resonantly as well as those of the AlAs- and GaAs-like phonon lines as the excitation photon energy...
