    • Abstract

       

      Starting from the present state-of-the-art of discrete devices up to the realization of monolithic semiconductor integrated prototypes, an overview of optoelectronic devices for telecommunications is given. Among discrete devices single frequency lasers, tunable and multi-sectionDFB lasers andPIN andAPD photodiode detectors are analysed, including the use of new technologies in progress for a second generation of devices. On the future perspective ofIBCN distribution networks, some economics of the hybrid and monolithic form of integration are attempted. Finally a short outline of the most recent achievements in monolithic integration is presented, taking into particular consideration the activities in this field byEEC ESPRIT andRACE programmes.
