Paper Abstract

Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) has become a key technology to cope with the exploding demand for the communication traffic. A variety of optical technologies, especially device-related technologies, has been developed to put the WDM into a new phase, i.e., next generation WDM. This paper reviews the recent advances in the WDM technologies, among which includes wavelength selective light sources, multi-wavelength integrated VCSELs, and wavelength tunable devices.
