D. A. B. Miller, "Optics for Digital Information Processing," in Semiconductor Quantum Optoelectronics, eds. A. Miller, M. Ebrahimzadeh, and D. M. Finlayson, Proceedings of the Fiftieth Scottish Universities Summer School in Physics, St. Andrews, June 1998 (Institute of Physics, Bristol, 1999), pp 433-461

These lecture notes summarize several related areas in the use of optics in information processing. There are three main sections on, respectively, the physics of optics and electronics for digital information processing, the physics of electroabsorption in semiconductors, and the potential application of both of these to dense optical interconnects.
