Abstract

A monolithically integrated optical repeater has been fabricated on a single-crystal semi-insulating GaAs substrate. The repeater consists of an optical detector, an electronic amplifier, and a double heterostructure crowding effect laser. The repeater makes use of three metal semiconductor field effect transistors, one of which is used as the optical detector. With light from an external GaAlAs laser incident on the detector, an overall optical power gain of 10 dB from both laser facets was obtained.
