Abstract

We summarize our ultrafast switching results in GaAs multiple quantum well directional couplers and report on coherent pulse propagation in single strip-loaded GaAs multiple quantum well waveguides. The transmitted pulse shape is measured by sum frequency generation cross-correlation and compared with calculations based on the coupled semiconductor Bloch and Maxwell's equations.
