Paper Abstract

In this paper we describe some of the research presently being done in areas that will have an impact on the future development of digital optical devices. We will mention: nonlinear optical effects in semi-conductor multiple quantum well material and some device applications; new studies of sub-picosecond nonlinear optical glasses and a figure of merit for material evaluation; and picosecond optical pulse shaping and coding. We conclude by identifying some key directions for future research.
