Paper Abstract

The influence of processing on the design of optical devices and optoelectronic integrated circuits is discussed. Process compatibility of devices used as the basis of a complete optoelectronic integrated circuit will be discussed along with some potential optoelectronic integrated circuits employing only phase modulators and couplers. Specific examples of the application of reactive-ion-beam etching in the formation of passive optical waveguide phase modulators, optical interconnects, turning mirrors, and output couplers in GaAs/AlGaAs are given.
