Guided-wave electro-optic tunable add drop multiplexer in Ti:LiNbO3 Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Tunable add-drop multiplexers are essential components for reconfigurable optical networks. Components that are based on electro-optic technology offer, in addition to add-drop capability, the desired features of rapid tuning and polarization-independent operation. A comparative overview of various technologies used in making such components, as well as the fabrication and results of a guided-wave electro-optic tunable add-drop multiplexer produced in LiNbO3at the 1550 nm wavelength regime are presented.
