Abstract
THE WORK PROPOSED HERE SEEKS A SOLUTION TO THE LOSS PROBLEM INHERENT IN THE EMERGING OPTICAL INTERCONNECT SYSTEMS WITH HIGH FAN-OUT AND FAN-IN, SUCH AS ALL-OPTICAL CROSSBAR SWITCHES. A POTENTIAL SOLUTION OF INTEREST IS OFFERED BY THE NEWLY DEVELOPED LASER AMPLIFYING DEVICES. A STUDY OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THESE DEVICES, THEIR APPLICABILITY TO THE PROBLEM AND AN INVESTIGATION OF PROJECTED SYSTEM PERFORMANCE IS SUGGESTED. SPECIFICALLY A STUDY PROGRAM IS PROPOSED THAT WILL INVESTIGATE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF OPTICAL AMPLIFYING DEVICES (E.G., III-V QUANTUM WELL DEVICES AND OTHERS) AND THE ISSUES OF THEIR INSERTION IN OPTICAL INTERCONNECTING SYSTEMS.
