Novel heterostructure metal-semiconductor-metal (HMSM) photodetectors with resonant cavity for fiber
Monolithically integrated photoreceivers, optoelectronic integrated circuit photoreceivers (OEIC), are important components for fiber optic communications. Two novel delta modulation doped HMSM photodetectors with resonant cavities have been designed with improved performance in terms of responsivity, speed, sensitivity, and wavelength selectivity to fulfill the increasingly more stringent requirements of transmission systems.

During World War II, the defense industry expanded and American men mobilized for military service. Many women found jobs previously unavailable to them in aircraft plants, shipyards, manufacturing companies, and the chemical, rubber, and metals factories producing war materials. These jobs paid higher salaries than those traditionally categorized as "women's work," such as teaching, domestic service, clerical work, nursing, and library science. Married women were discouraged from working outsid
