Paper Abstract

Optical interconnects provide wide bandwidth, lowloss, and high fanout as compared to those for traditional electrical interconnects. In the past years many high performance optoelectronic circuits have been demonstrated. However, most of them require complicated process and exotic devices. To make optical interconnects in real system and commercial use, circuits utilizing manufacturable, robust, and low-cost technology have to be realized. Ion implanted GaAs MESFETs provide great promise due to their simplicity in manufacturing and their high speed performance. The optical characteristics of GaAs materials also make this technology favorable in realizing low-cost, high-performance OEICs.
