Paper Abstract

The development of dense WDM-systems for growing data transmission rates requires optical components with well defined spectral properties for multiplexing and demultiple4xing, gain equalization, dispersion management, and routing. Among the various concepts for realizing WDM- devices those based on guided waves have achieved a high performance: Arrayed Waveguide Gratings (AWGs) for high channel counts fabricated with a silica-on-silicon technology and Fiber Bragg Gratings for their performance in gain equalization and dispersion compensation. They also are used in ADMs and multiple WDM-sources.
