Paper Abstract

The central role of photonics in the new millennium, which has often been predicted is now becoming a reality. The Wavelength Division Multiplexing or the WDM revolution is upon us. Sprouting everywhere are the new technologies, companies and devices that keep, in this revolutionary internet era, information as photons for as many transfer operations as possible. The critical components that are poised to fuel the photonics explosion are already in view (see Figure 1).
