Research Institution
The feasibility of a high speed InP based OEIC (optoelectronic integrated circuit) will be investigated.The combination of high speed InP based HBT will be integrated with a P-i-n photodetector. The integration of these two deviceswill simplify the material structure, the processing, and the packaging. A prototype of this OEIC will be built in Phase I.Phase II will focus on the improvement of the OEIC to handle data rates in excess of 40 Gb/s,reliability issues, manufacturability, and packaging issues of this circuit.InP based technology has a clear potential to significantly advance the data rate capability of optical communication circuits.The integration of high speed InP based HBT along with the laser and detector components can greatly simplify the circuit and improve the performanceand potentially lower the cost. Commercial application of this technology include high speed internet optical communication networks and high speedlocal area networkslocal area networks, and
