Abstract:

The capability of providing quality ZnSe oriented crystals for substrate material and of producing planar and channel waveguides by diffusion or ion-implantation techniques in this material has been demonstrated. Zinc telluride has likewise been shown to be a useful material for optical waveguide fabrication. The large electrooptic coupling coefficients of these semiconductors are attractive for active devices in the field of integrated optical circuits. The growth, analysis and characterization through an understanding of the electrical and optical properties of the I-III-VI sub 2 semiconductors with chalcopyrite structure have aided in the development of the potential exhibited by these materials for nonlinear optics applications. Junction diode fabrication and photovoltaic detection in the near infrared has been demonstrated in CuInSe2 crystals.
