Paper Abstract

Optoelectronics as applied to telecommunications, data communications, CATV, et. al. is characterized by prodigious global growth and spectacular technological innovations. During the next decade we will not only observe wide usage but also technological obsolescence and price erosion. We will review the systems, subsystems and components roadmaps into the next decade. While the technical performance requirements will continue to escalate, the reliability and cost criteria will be paramount. The requirements for design and performance of various active, passive and hybrid components and subsystems will be reviewed. Various new and exciting enabling technologies to yield the required components and subsystems will be described.
