Paper Abstract

Integrated Optics on Silicon substrate (IOS) has appeared very early. This original work was concerned with monolithic integration of waveguides and photodiodes which seemed then to be THE major advantage of silicon. Since these pioneer times, a lot of work has been done and new reasons for the world-wide success of silicon have emerged. We try in the following paper to make a short overview of the possibilities offered by silicon, along with new trends appearing on IOS, each of them trying to overcome the limitation of IOS to passive devices.
