D. A. B. Miller "Quantum Well Devices for Optics in Digital Systems" SPIE International Conference on Advances in Interconnection and Packaging, 1389, 496-502, (1990).

Semiconductor quantum well devices are an important option for incorporating optics in digital systems. Some underlying reasons why optical devices can benefit digital systems are discussed. The potential for quantum well optical modulators and switches to help realize these benefits is summarized briefly. The importance of integration of optical and electronic components for any large scale use of optics in digital systems is emphasized
