Abstract:

Investigations of optoelectronic phenomena are being performed in an effort to extend the applicability of integrated circuits. The program has been divided into two tasks. Task I covered the design and fabrication of Optoelectronic Functional Electronic Blocks. Under Task I, Optoelectronic Pulse Amplifiers were designed and fabricated. The effort during this report period was applied to Task II, which is concerned with the development of semiconductor and measurement technology necessary to enhance the capabilities of Optoelectronic Functional Electronic Blocks. The technology and measurement investigations reported under Task II include 1 A study of the problems associated with high-index glasses used as optical coupling media. 2 The description of a shaped flat light source to improve optical coupling efficiency. 3 A study of diffusion process variables. 4 A study of dislocation density and its relationship to device behavior. 5 A description of some GaAs-GaAs sub x P sub 1-x transparent structures. 6 Transient photo-response measurements for room temperature and liquid nitrogen temperature. 7 A comparison of the optical and electrical characteristics of mesa and planar GaAs diodes. 8 A description of a light-spot scanning apparatus.
