Abstract:

Work is reported on establishing the feasibility of integrated optics for use in high-capacity multi-GHz telecommunications and for implementing a militarily applicable, fiber-optic-transmission-line, multiterminal multiplexing system through low-loss coupling and modulation. More specifically, optical waveguiding in diffused-layer and heteroepitaxial thin-film semiconductor structures, both planar and three-dimensional, is demonstrated, as is electrooptic modulation in diffused-layer and heteroepitaxial thin-film semiconductor structures of high resistivity. In addition, optical propagation in fiber-optic waveguides is theoretically analyzed, and future areas of research and development particularly pattern delineation and optical coupling and theoretical analysis are outlined.
