Paper Abstract

We discuss novel detectors and modulator structures fabricated from GaAs/AtxGai_xAs multiquantum well superlattices, which are compatible with high speed optical computing at the CO2 laser wavelength A = 10.6 μm. These components can be integrated with transparent GaAs optical waveguides and also with GaAs FETs or bipolar transistors for high speed electronic signal processing.
