Abstract : Work in the three focus areas of the OMO: Diode based Visible Sources ((DvS). Optoelectronic Tools for Intelligent Manufacturing (OTIM), and Optoelectronic Information Networks (0 IN) is detailed in the following final technical report. The efforts in DVS concentrated on the development of GaN materials and device technology and the realization of blue and near uv sources by Quasi Phase Matched (QPM) Second Harmonic Generation (SHG). Significant results were achieved in both areas including the demonstration of a blue (approx. 425 nm) single quantum well GaN/InGaN diode and SHG waveguide devices with 20 mW of power in the blue. Under the OITM focus area, research concentrated on the development of tunable diode laser sources for use in spectroscopy. Success in the demonstration of widely tunable devices based on quantum well engineering was achieved. In the OIN focus area work was aimed at a variety of optoelectronic functions that are required for the successful demonstration of optical interconnects. Work addressed quantum well based optical modulators, high speed extended wavelength silicon MSM detectors, holographic interconnects and smart pixels based on resonant enhanced detectors, heterojunction bipolar transistors and VCSELs. Smart pixel arrays with switching speeds of 1 Gb/sec were demonstrated.
