The role of silicon in integrated optics

Silicon is the mainstay of the modern microelectronics industry, so it is only natural to consider its potential for use in integrated optical or optoelectronic circuits. This idea is especially attractive from a commercial point of view, since high purity crystalline silicon is already available at low cost, and since there is already a well established processing technology for silicon.
