We demonstrate the use of heterogeneously integrated microdisk lasers for application in low-power and high-speed all-optical flip-flops and gates. Flip-flop operation is experimentally demonstrated using pulse energies of 1.8 fJ in lasers with a diameter of 7.5 ┬Ám. Potential optimization of the performance and future photonic integrated circuits are also described.
