A monolithic optical/optoelectronic switch for a reconfigurable, parallel optical interconnect is described. By integrating a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser with a three-terminal GaAs-AlGaAs heterojunction phototransistor, the functions of an optical transceiver and an optical space switch are combined. Switching experiments demonstrate optical/optoelectronic switching and data conversion at 200 Mbit/s
