Paper Abstract

Electroabsorption and electrorefraction properties of bulk and multiple quantum well structures made fr III-V compound semiconductor materials are discussed in this paper. The large electroabsorption that has already been observed is suitable for spatial light modulation. The potential advantages for using these structures for spatial light modulation include high speed of response and monolithic integration with detectors and electronic devices on the same chip. Variations of the electro-optical properties such as absorption wavelength birefringence. nonlinearity and speed of response as a function of structural
