Abstract

We propose a novel excitable laser employing passively Q-switching with a graphene saturable absorber for spike processing networks. Our approach combines the picosecond processing and switching capabilities of both linear and nonlinear optical device technologies to integrate both analog and digital optical processing into a single hardware architecture capable of ultrafast computation without the need for analog-to-digital conversion.
