Wavelength multiplexing (WDM) offers enormous potential for increasing the information capacity of an optical fiber. The use of WDM also decreases the requirea number of fibers (and interconnections) in an optical bus structure. Some of the different existing methods of design and fabrication of MUX-DEMUX devices are shortly reviewed, and experimental results are presented referring to a guided-wave geodesic multiplexer. The problems of interconnecting optical fibers to a thin-film waveguide are also discussed.
