Abstract : A broad research program in optics was conducted that included the successful study of the following topics. Nonlinear effects in pulse propagation in fibers. The effects of gain saturation on self-phase modulation during the amplification of picosecond pulses in semiconductor lasers. The development of a theory for superfluorescent decay. Light emission from silicon and optical waveguiding in silicon wafers. Finally, the effects of substrate preparation on mass transport properties in glass waveguides was studied. (MM)
