We present here a method for selecting optical patterns in a passive semiconductor microresonator, by using a spatial perturbation. A pattern is spontaneously generated in the system, and a switching beam causes this pattern to rotate even if the power in the switching beam is much lower than the power in the pattern. Thus, an all optical switch is realized, that operates at low light levels.

Abstract

We present here a method for selecting optical patterns in a passive semiconductor microresonator, by using a spatial perturbation. A pattern is spontaneously generated in the system, and a switching beam causes this pattern to rotate even if the power in the switching beam is much lower than the power in the pattern. Thus, an all optical switch is realized, that operates at low light levels.
