Paper Abstract

The practical usefulness of multimode guided wave optics has been overshadowed by the powerful trend of optical communications towards single mode technologies. Although multimode integrated optic technology lends itself to a very restricted palette of optical functions, it can perform elementary functions at a cost which falls dramatically as the number of identical samples increases unlike that of all-fibre and micro-optic components. Glass integrated optics brings the additional advantage of stability versus external physical parameters.
