Abstract
NEW PHOTONIC SOLID STATE MATERIALS HAVE BEEN DISCOVERED BY QUANTEX. THE NEW MATERIALS DISPLAY LARGE ELECTRON TRAPPING (ET) AND ARE VERY EFFICIENT. THEY READILY DISPLAY OPTICAL READ/WRITE/ERASE MEMORY CHARACTERISTICS AND APPEAR TO PROMISE OPTICAL SWITCHING. THE ENERGY IS MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE HIGH ENERGY TRAPPED ELECTRONS, WHICH IN TURN ARE ENERGIZED AT THE EXPENSE OF AN INDEPENDENT "POWER SUPPLY" LIGHT SOURCE. THE PHASE I WORK WILL CHARACTERIZE THE BASIC BEHAVIOR OF THESE UNIQUE MATERIALS AND WILL DEMONSTRATE SOME FUNDAMENTAL PHOTONIC FUNCTIONS; SUCH AS MEMORY AND SWITCHING.
