    As devices shrink, creating integrated circuits (ICs) that work with the required accuracy becomes more difficult due to issues related to device physics. Receivers are part of an area referred to as "mixed-signal design," meaning that both analog and digital circuitry will be on the same IC. This too presents many challenging issues, as the analog circuitry is highly sensitive to disruptions caus... View full abstract»

    The ultra high-speed capability of quantum-well infrared photodetectors (QWIPs) is well known, thanks to their intrinsic short carrier lifetime (∼5 ps). This obviously makes QWIPs well suited for high-speed and high-frequency applications. In the past, for thermal infrared imaging where devices are optimized to have the highest possible detectivity, the absorption quantum efficiency has been l... View full abstract»

    Since the invention of semiconductor lasers, huge improvements in device performance have been achieved, and a large variety of specialized designs for different applications were conceived. Two major steps have played a key role in the improvement of device properties. The first step was the application of semiconductor heterostructures that allowed the separate optimization of optical and carrie... View full abstract»

    As computers and the Internet become faster and faster, more and more information is transmitted, received, processed, and stored everyday. The demand for high-speed, large-capacity information systems is pushing scientists and engineers to explore all possible approaches, including electrical and optical means. Photorefractive materials and devices are becoming viable alternatives for information... View full abstract»
