D. A. B. Miller, "Optical Interconnects to Silicon", IEEE J. Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics, 6, 1312-1317 (2000)

This paper fives a brief historical summary of hte development of the field of optical interconnects to silicon integrated circuits. It starts from roots in early optical switching phenomena, proceeds through novel semiconductor and quantum well optical and optoelectronic physics and devices, first proposals for optical interconnects, and optical computing and photonic system demonstrators, to hybrid integrations of optoelectronic and silicon circuits that may solve  basic scaling and other problems for interconnections in future information  processing and switching machines.
