Abstract : This document is the third annual report on research conducted under the auspices of the Joint Services Electronics Program at Cornell University. The research has been organized under the integrated theme 'Ultra-High Speed Compound Semiconductor Photonics.' Results on OMVPE materials growth, femtosecond optical probing of thin films, quantum wells and-device structures, ensemble Monte Carlo simulation of pump-and-probe thin film experiments and optoelectronic detectors, design and fabrication of strain compensated multi-quantum-well high speed vertical cavity lasers, and fabrication of integrated high speed metal-semiconductor-metal light detectors. Work has progressed according to plan. This research will continue under a new three year contract.
