Paper Abstract

A monolithic integrated optical circuit consisting of an LED (light emitting diode), a modulator and a detector on a GaAs substrate is demonstrated. The voltage tunable effective bandgap of doping superlattices is utilized to integrate several physically identical devices which perform different functions depending on their individual bias voltage. The detector responds linearly to the emitter intensity. Linear amplitude modulation is observed with change of modulator bias over an appreciable range.
