Abstract : This patent describes an integrated optical signal communicating device associating an optical waveguide for guiding a light wave with a light-emitting junction for emitting the light wave and a light-collecting junction for receiving at least a part of the light wave. The device utilizes the gallium aluminum arsenide alloy system in the fabrication of the waveguide, emitter and collector to produce a device with high radiation resistance.
