Paper Abstract

The application of transfer function matrix (TFM) synthesis concepts of linear space-invariant systems to lightwave circuits (LWCs) is reviewed and briefly discussed. The applied decoupling concepts are 1-D though the systems are 2-D where the application of 2-D decoupling concepts is left for forthcoming papers. Although the approach is applicable to nonlinear (NL) systems we restrict presently to linear systems. Distributed feedbacks (FBs) are established by means of a flexible grating concept which includes the electro-optical generation of reflections as well as their tuning. In this way reflections may be switched off and on, enabling novel devices and operations (presented in forthcoming papers) , and the gain of FB controller matrices may be adjusted according to the algebraic results of control theory. The discussion of further components (optical isolators and frequency converters), needed throughout the proposed concept, is left for forthcoming papers.
