Paper Abstract

Integrated optics is a generic term used to describe guided wave devices combining several functions on a single substrate. Passive integrated optics, or "planar", refers to a family of devices that requires no external power source to perform their functions. Their most promising short-term application is fiber-based telecommunications systems. Examples are power splitters and wavelength division multiplexers (WDMs). For the purposes of this review, we will consider devices in which light enters and exits via optical fiber pigtails.
