The use of optical signal transmission for information exchange is expanding dramatically, prompted mainly by the developments in the field of fiber optics. As a result, there exists an increasing demand for both discrete and integrated optoelectronic devices. This paper reviews the progress made in discrete optical sources and detectors for both short (0. 82 mu m) and long (1. 3, 1. 55 mu m) wavelengths. The paper explores the possibility of integrating components whereby discrete sources and detectors can be combined with transistors to give cheap, reliable, fast integrated optoelectronics.
