Paper Abstract

In the twenty first century, optoelectronics will join with electronics and establish new photon electron collaborating systems, Photo-Electronic Integrated systems, which will become the major type system for information processings. The optical interconnection in computers which has started recently will develop deeper into the computer system and will reach optical interconnections inside of ULSIs, resulting the first step of Photo-Electronic Integrated System. Many micro optoelectronic devices will be integrated into ultra-LSIs to form ultra-large scale opto-electronic integrated circuits, U-OEICs.

Close collaborations of photons with electrons are thus achieved and a wide variety of new systems will be developed based on U-OEIC technologies. By using U-OEIC scheme electronic systems will become faster, lower power, lower noise and also expand into three dimensional systems. Three dimensional super-parallel systems will be developed, which will be used for ultra high speed computers, neural systems and many "optical systems". Two dimensional images can be analyzed by the Photo-Electronic Integrated Systems, in which high density micro-electronics will be utilized for logical operations in the three dimensional optically interconnected circuits.
