Paper Abstract

Starting with a waveguide amplifier as a crucial building block among many others, we demonstrate a library of optical elements that can be seamlessly integrated on a single silica-on-silicon chip and produce complex integrated optical circuits. This new level of planar waveguide integration is made possible by recent advances in our waveguide manufacturing technology capable of combining up to three different core materials on the same wafer. We discuss in details the performance and applications of these elements as well as new circuits, such as an amplified reconfigurable add-drop module.
