Abstract:This thesis addresses two important issues in the development of optical interconnection. One major goal is to develop a set of circuit simulation models in order to enable the simulation of various optoelectronic integrated circuits. Another goal is to develop integrated optical switch circuits with the new impurity induced layer disordering ($I\sp2LD$) technology.
The design of a 2 x 2 optical switch with this novel $I\sp2LD$ technology is presented in this thesis. This new optical switch promises to provide a shorter response time and a higher extinction rate than current available optical switches. The focus of this work is the harnessing of a new technology to its system application.
A lack of suitable models hinders circuit simulations of optoelectronics. To enable circuit simulation of OEICs, models for a quantum well laser, light emitting diode, p-i-n diode, light modulator, and lossy transmission line have been developed and implemented into a circuit simulator. The modeling work concentrates mainly on developing the quantum well laser model and the circuit element coupling lossy transmission line model. This set of models provides the simulation capability of various forms of optoelectronic integrated circuits.
