A lasing quantum well optoelectronic switch (QWOES) based on a forward biased pn junction is demonstrated in an AlGaAs/GaAs/lnGaAs double heterostructure. Excellent electrical switching characteristics with a high voltage control efficiency η, (=VS/VH ) of 6.8 have been obtained when the device is operated in the dark. Typical OFF-state and ON-state resistances of 120 kΩ and 25 kΩ, respectively, were obtained. The lasing threshold current density, front slope efficiency and external differential quantum efficiency measured in an as-cleaved device are 210 A/cm2. 0.4 mW/mA and 31.4%, respectively. The peak emission wavelength is centred at ~974 nm
