Abstract

Integration of semiconductor and metal structures into optical fibers to enable fusion of semiconductor optoelectronic function with glass optical fibers is discussed. A chemical vapor deposition (CVD)-like process, adapted for high pressure flow within microstructured optical fibers allows for flexible fabrication of such structures. Integration of semiconductor optoelectronic devices such as lasers, detectors, and modulators into fibers may now become possible.
