Abstract

We demonstrated a twofold acceleration of the fast time constant characterizing the recovery of a p-doped indium-phosphide photonic crystal all-optical gate. Time-resolved spectral analysis is compared to a three-dimensional drift-diffusion model for the carrier dynamics, demonstrating the transition from the ambipolar to the faster minority carrier dominated diffusion regime. This opens the perspective for faster yet efficient nanophotonic all-optical gates.
