Silica waveguide planar lightwave circuit (PLC) technology is very useful for fabricating compact and high performance optical devices for optical communication. Wavelength multiplexers and optical switches for ROADM and OXC are still being developed to improve performance further. New devices for an advanced modulation format can also be fabricated with PLC technology.
