Abstract

We describe an analog self-electro-optic-effect device that gives a difference between two optical output powers that is linearly proportional to electrical or optical drive, permitting bipolar processing in novel image-processing arrays. The device is able to operate over a range of more than four orders of magnitude optical power, from 50 nW to 2.5 mW, corresponding to uniform incident intensities as low as 3.3 mW/cm2.
