    Abstract

    Electrically-controlled, tuneable and repeatable neuron-like spiking regimes are generated in an optically-injected 1300 nm Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser at sub-nanosecond speeds (>7 orders of magnitude faster than neurons). These results offer great prospects for compact and ultrafast photonic neuronal models for future neuromorphic computing platforms.
