Abstract

A novel heterostructure device for use as an all-optical spatial light modulator is described. The all-optical modulation results from the property that an incident laser is able to switch on an electric field in every period of the heterostructure. Preliminary experiments demonstrate photogenerated electric fields as high as 30 kV/cm with moderate laser intensities. It is shown that this modulator can be operated with megahertz modulation rates.
