Paper Abstract

Recent advances in the development of a 10-amplifier active integrated-optic device are reviewed. High coherence is demonstrated for the array, which integrated power splitters, turning mirrors, phase modulators, and optical amplifiers on a single chip. Techniques for controlling the most significant parameters, the rib dimensions and the turning mirror roughness, are described. The performance of the various component and integrated devices is discussed.
