Wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) systems are attractive for increasing transmission capacity and network flexibility, and they require various kinds of filters. The use of silica-based planar lightwave circuit (PLC) technology [1] is one of the most promising ways to fabricate filters for WDM networks, because PLC devices have low insertion losses, design flexibility, high reliability, and good reproducibility.
