D. A. B. Miller, "Optical Logic and the Self Electro-optic Effect Device (SEED)," GLOBECOM '84, IEEE Global Telecommunications Conference, November 26-29, 1984, Atlanta, Georgia, Conference Record, 890-892.

Using a recently discovered electroabsorptive effect in GaAs/AlGaAs multiple quantum well material, a novel high-speed optical modulator and an optical logic gate have been demonstrated. The logic gate, called a self electrooptic effect device (SEED), has dissipation limits significantly lower than previously demonstrated devices and is very encouraging for the development of architectures utilizing the unique advantages of optics for communications
