We have presented a unique PT-VCSEL arrangement which experimentally demonstrates the process of optically controlled current confinement. Lessons learned will be transferred to future generations of solitary device which will be optimized with respect to the degree of confinement (depending on the parameters of the PT, in particular the current gain), threshold current and electro-optic efficiency.
