Paper Abstract

There seem to be no technological or material problems impeding the development of integrated optical circuits (IOC's) which cannot be overcome. Instead the largest stumbling block is the lack of clearly defined application areas in which IOC's can perform in a unique or clearly superior way. In the long run, high data-rate optical communications may be the driving forces. In the near term, we must look to specialized signal- and data-processing tasks.
