Abstract : High gain and very sensitive photonic switching device is developed by integrating directly and vertically a hetero-junction phototransistor and a laser diode. The device switches on with a very low input power of -10nW and emits output power of -4mW under continuous wave condition. The minimum switching energy is estimated to be as low as 8OfJ.
