In this paper we describe some of the research presently being done in areas that will have an impact on the future development of digital optical devices. We will mention: nonlinear optical effects in semi-conductor multiple quantum well material and some device applications; new studies of sub-picosecond nonlinear optical glasses and a figure of merit for material evaluation; and picosecond optical pulse shaping and coding. We conclude by identifying some key directions for future research.
