Photonics IC is an attractive information processing means to fully utilize the enormous bandwidth carried by the optical signals. The full integration of photonics devices, such as tunable lasers, modulators and photodetectors have to be developed and which can be obtain by using the Quantum Well Intermixing technology. This paper will explore on the wavelength tunability using different Quantum Well Intermixing techniques, such as impurity induced diffusion and impurity- free vacancy diffusion. Emphasis will be put on the development of the very recent innovations and applications.
