Paper Abstract

Planar lightwave circuit (PLC) hybrid integration is a promising way to realizing low-cost and highly functional optical components which are integrated with opto-electronic (OE) devices. As low-cost components, WDM hybrid transceiver modules have been developed to construct the fiber-to-the- home networks. As highly functional optical components, a multi-wavelength light source, a high-speed optical wavelength selector and a differential photoreceiver module have been demonstrated to construct optical transmission and switching systems employing dense wavelength-division- multiplexing and time-division-multiplexing technologies. This paper reviews the current status and recent progress on the PLC hybrid integration.
