In previous work for the Air Force on the Three Terminal Qptoelectronic Array program, a technology base was developed for the implementation of monolithic integrated optoelectronic circuits based upon the modulation doped inversion channel interface. In the Integrated Optical Transceiver program, that technology was adapted to the implementation of traveling wave devices that could operate at frequencies up to 100Gbs. The concepts of a grating coupled vertical cavity laser and a grating coupled resonant cavity detector are introduced and designs were completed and implemented in photomasks. The performance of the second order grating was evaluated and models developed. The insertion of the grating into the vertical cavity waveguide was characterized and the laser performance was analyzed. A new approach to the implementation of the waveguide was developed. The speed of the detector was analyzed as a function of the velocity mismatch. A complete set of photomasks 14 levels was developed including traveling wave devices, OE test circuits and a variety of diagnostic test chips. The devices implemented include FET circuits-CCDs, switch based OE interface circuits, HFET and DOES lasers as vertical emitters, directional couplers, and heterodyne laser sources.
