23 January 1997 Integration of optical devices on planar substrates
Author Affiliations +
Thirty years after first envisioned, integrated planar optical devices are being commercialized. The markets driving commercialization are discussed. The types of planar devices and fabrication techniques are described. The technologies required for planar integration are then reviewed. Finally, some challenges facing commercialization are explored.
