Optoelectronic integration, i.e., integration of optical devices with electronic circuits, is the most realistic solution to the demand for high-speed multifunctional compact devices in optical communication and data processing.1,2 This paper demonstrates the monolithic integration of a terraced laser diode (LD), a monitoring photodetector (PD), a modulation circuit and constant current laser drive circuit, and an amplification circuit for the monitor on a semi-insulating (SI) GaAs substrate. This is the horizontal structure of integration,3 where the electric current is fed to and taken from only one side of the substrate.
