Paper Abstract

A GaAs/AIGaAs fiber-optic interconnect structure for high-density applications is discussed. The vertical approach, which employs reactive-ion-etched cavities to couple fibers to the semiconductor substrate, permits interconnect arrays with densities up to 1600 sites/cm2. Factors affecting the applicability of the fiber coupler and the achievable packing density are considered.
