Techniques for Monolithically Fabricating Photonic Integrated Circuits

  • Emil S. Koteles


The impact, on information processing and distribution, of a practical technique for integrating semiconductor active and passive photonic devices cannot be overstated. It will be as significant as was the development of the electronic integrated circuit on the modern, technological world. Despite considerable efforts by a number of groups worldwide over the years, this utopian vision has yet to be realized, highlighting the magnitude of the technological challenges involved. However, recent progress in several areas is very encouraging.
