Paper Abstract

As work on wavelength multiplexed networks matures, it is becoming increasingly clear that there is a need for small, monolithic WDM elements for practical implementation. It is the purpose of this paper to discuss the design and fabrication of one such element, produced using silica waveguides on silicon. The design parameters for the device are for 16 channels of 1 nm bandwidth, with 2 nm channel separation, operating in the third telecoms wavelength region and coincident with the erbium fiber amplifier.
