9.The effective recovery time of the absorber is given by where τ is the intrinsic recovery time (typically a few ns), the gain, S the photon density, and χ a cavity asymmetry factor. Since we can keep during the switching with an appropriate bias, an order of magnitude of improvement is possible (see Ref. 7 for more details).
