Multi-wavelength transmitters and receivers are the key elements for point-to-point WDM links. The functionality of the links is increased by the addition of optical add-drop multiplexers (OADMs) and WDM networks are formed by using optical cross-connects (OXCs). For a successful monolithic integration of these WDM components, the number of elementary components from which they are made has to be small, in order to keep the technological challenges manageable. In this paper we will identify the building blocks and show how they are used.
