Optical Information Processing with Quantum Well Seed's

  • Leo M. F. Chirovsky (a1)

Abstract

This is a review of how and why modem epilayer growth techniques have led to a novel class of optical devices, the Quantum Well SEED's, and of how and why these devices, in turn, have enabled experiments on novel system architectures in which digital information is processed or routed in parallel optically, to take advantage of the large space-bandwidth product of free-space optical interconnects.
