Abstract
THE AVAILABILITY OF FIBER OPTICS OPENS THE WAY OF INTEGRATING PHOTONIC COMPONENTS INTO THE FIBER; IN OTHER WORDS PERFORM AS MANY FUNCTIONS AS POSSIBLE ON THE OPTICAL SIGNAL ITSELF. QUANTEX HAS DEVELOPED SOME OPTICAL MATERIALS WHICH HAVE UNUSUAL PROPERTIES. THE PARTICULAR MATERIALS DISPLAY LARGE ELECTRON TRAPPING AND, THEREFORE, THEY ARE CALLED ET MATERIALS. THEY CAN PERFORM CERTAIN OPTICAL FUNCTIONS ALREADY AT THE EXPENSE OF A PUMP LIGHT. LIGHT LEVEL OPERATION ELIMINATES PROBLEMS WITH HEAT DISSIPATION, EMP, RADIATION HARDENING AND REDUCES WIRING. EXPLORATORY WORK IN THIS AREA IS PROPOSED.
