High-performance integrated circuits, which can operate at frequencies in the GHz range, are required for applications such as wireless digital communications and fiber-optic data transmission. Parallel computers, high resolution graphics, and network backbones are among the many applications that could immediately benefit from inexpensive, compact, and easy-to-use giga-bit rate fiber-optic data links. Mobile communications have been also growing rapidly in this decade.
