Abstract
Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) is attracting considerable interest in the field of fiber optic telecommunications since it provides the means to utilize the large optical bandwidth of optical fibers. A key issue to implementing a WDM system is the development of new lightwave components such as laser arrays that can transmit at predetermined optical frequencies, as well as discrete lasers that can be quickly switched between predetermined optical frequencies. In addition to transmitters, wavelength selective receivers and fast tunable photodetectors as well as passive wavelength multiplexers and routers are required. Photonic integrated circuits can potentially integrate several of these optical functions one a chip.
