Paper Abstract

Research and engineering are underway for incorporating thermooptic waveguide elements into product-quality silica planar-lightwave circuits to enable dynamic functions such as switches and programmable attenuators as integrable components. One of the initial targets for this technology is to integrate an AWG dense wavelength multiplexer with an array of programmable variable optical attenuators in order to preset the spectral power distribution in a dense wavelength-division multiplexed channel.
