Author Affiliations +
Planar waveguide devices play an important role in DWDM networking applications in term of highly integration and cost effective production. This talk will review the application of UV laser to modify the silica based planar waveguide device, such as Array Waveguide Grating (AWG) or other planar filters for multiplex and Demultiplex and Mach- Zehnder interferometer (MZI) based devices. Irradiation of UV laser to change local index of refraction in waveguides provides a unique way to perfect and enhance the function of planar waveguide devices. Also, the DWDM devices fabrication using combination of waveguide fabrication and UV laser processing will be reviewed.
