Long wavelength OEIC is one of the most important key elements for local area networks, subscriber systems, and data links. InP based OEICs, however, have not been well developed so far because of immature InP based electronic device technologies. To overcome this problem, the authors have proposed and developed long wavelength OEICs on GaAs-on-InP heterostructures(1)(2). which enable integrating InP based optical devices and GaAs based electronic devices on InP substrates. These OEICs can ease both the circuit design and the circuit scale expansion, because matured GaAs IC technologies can be utilized.
