Paper Abstract

This paper reports recent advances in photonic functional devices based on silica planar lightwave circuit technology for advanced optical networks. After briefly summarizing the progress on circuits, this work describes dynamic devices designed to compensate for unwanted fiber characteristics with respect to high-speed wavelength division multiplexing transmissions, mainly focusing on a tunable chromatic dispersion compensator. The paper then describes optical signal processing devices, namely a spectrum synthesis device, an optical encoder/decoder for time-spreading/wavelength-hopping optical code division multiple access, and a label processor for a phase modulated signal.
