Paper Abstract

In this paper, the design and applications of Large Scale Integrated (LSI) Planar Lightwave Circuits (PLCs) for WDM systems are discussed. The general design issues of PLCs', such as size, loss and crosstalk are addressed. A 32-wavelength optical add/drop multiplexer (OADM) with 4 pairs of fully addressable add/drop ports is presented as an example application for LSI-PLCs.
