Abstract

We integrated a wavelength-selective cross-connect, de-interleaver,interleaver, power combiner, and variable attenuators on one silica waveguide chip and a band demultiplexer, band multiplexer, and optical monitor on another. These two chips are used to create an eight-channel add-drop node that is expandable up to 80 channels with minimal traffic interruption by adding more of these chips.
