We investigated the use of an analog self-electrooptic effect device based on GaAs multiple quantum wells as an image processor chip to early vision processes. We focused our attention at the edge detection process using layouts of photodetectors to extract Laplacians of images. Laplacians of linear, constant, step, and Gaussian intensity profiles agree with the expected values. These results show that the device works properly as an edge detector.
