Paper Abstract

WDM is an enabling technology for future satellite communications to increase capacity of bandwidth and network efficiency. Polymer based substrate mode optical interconnects is advantageous over its competing technologies, such as waveguide and free space approaches, in terms of insertion loss, robustness, and packaging. In this paper, we will describe polymer substrate mode photonic interconnects and their reconfiguration functions for separation of coarse and dense wavelength channels.
