Paper Abstract

The scope of integrated optics is to perform signal processing at optical frequencies by using a miniature planar configuration consisting of thin films deposited on a suitable substrate. By utilizing guided optical waves rather than electric currents, such a planar configuration may perform functions analogous to those presently achieved by integrated electronics components. In this presentation, we shall review the forms and basic operation of passive components of current interest in integrated optics. Devices involving active components are being described in other presentations.
