Abstract:

Not Available This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project deals with the development of planar waveguide routers for Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing Systems, based on our recently developed low-birefringence double ion-exchange glass waveguide technology. The double ion-exchange approach enables much easier elimination of the polarization dependence compared to other planar waveguide technologies. The fabrication process is extremely simple and reproducible, which facilitates low-cost production of the devices. The proposed devices feature low losses, low-cross talk and are polarization insensitive which is of crucial importance in practical applications. Successfully meeting the goals in this Phase I project will provide an excellent foundation for the development of fully packaged fiber-pigtailed devices. The key advantage of the planar waveguide router approach is the possibility for large number of wavelength channels. The goal in this program is to develop reliable 64 x 64 waveguide routers for future Dense WDM-systems. The proposed devices have potential for extremely low-cost production. They meet the needs of the rapidly growing telecommunications market and have great commercial potential
