Abstract

Current optical telecommunication systems employ dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) techniques to increase the data carrying capacity of fiber networks. Dynamic add/drop and filtering processes are crucial for the precise control of individual channels on these networks. Reconfigurable integrated optical devices, such as planar Bragg gratings, can tune the reflection wavelength over several standard channel spacings, providing the possibility for all-optical dynamic networks. Planar devices have the potential to address and tune several channels simultaneously, and have greater potential for integration than fiber equivalents.
