Spiking micro-lasers are interesting neuromorphic building blocks to realize all-optical spiking neural networks. Optical spike-based computing offers speed and parallelism of optical technologies combined with a sparse way of representing information in spikes, thus with a potential for efficient brain-inspired computing. This article reviews some of the latest advances in this field using single and coupled semiconductor excitable micro-lasers.
