The remarkable early success and current explosive growth of electronic
integrated circuits have fascinated photonics researchers since 1969 with
the prospect of similar success in optical integrated circuits. Alas, physical
and economic factors have stymied their efforts. Two recent commercial optical
integrated circuits may be the first points on a photonic Moore's law curve.
The author presents his view of the progress of optical integrated circuits
since S. E. Miller's proposal in the 1969 Bell
Systems Technical Journal.
