Paper Abstract

This paper reports on the current technological status and future trend of those optical devices that are crucial for the development of the future optical communication technology. Particular emphasis has been dedicated to identify the active and passive optical components that are needed in advanced optical networks. The discussion of their physical and practical limitations is also subject of this article, as it is felt that these issues will ultimately have a considerable impact on the progress of the future fiber based telecommunication infrastructure.
