The monolithic integration of electronic and optical functions on a single semiconductor crystal has become known as integrated optoelectronic circuits. These circuits usually contain a semiconductor laser and the associated driver electronics, detection and current amplication, or combine these two functions in an optical repeater. Monolithic integration leads to smaller circuits, greater ruggedness, and should result in lower cost.

Additional Information:© 1984 IEEE. Manuscript received June 23, 1984. I am also grateful for the foresightedness of the people of the funding agencies who would allow us to go on working and “playing” for fifteen years on our dream of an “Integrated Optoelectronics” before it became fashionable and, thus more easily justifed. I could not finish this paper without thanking M. Stickley (formerly with the Advanced Research Projects Agency); R. Reynolds, S. Roosild (Advanced Research Projects Agency), A. Schutzman (National Science Foundation), and A. Shostak, L. Cooper at the Office of Naval Research, and H. Schlossbergat the Air Force Office of Scientific Research for continued support and personal involvement in the work described.
