Abstract:

The development of techniques for the growth of large area vapor phase epitaxial GaAs and GaAsP, and liquid phase epitaxial GaAs and GaAlAs, waveguide structures is described. The development of evaluation techniques for determining the attenuation rate in the waveguide structures is also discussed. Evaluation results obtained on an initial series of GaAs waveguide structures are described and compared to calculated attenuation rates.
