Author Affiliations +
Silica waveguide technology transitioned from laboratories to commercial use in early 1990. Since then, various applications have been exploited based on this technology. Tens of thousands of array waveguide grating (AWG) devices have been installed worldwide for DWDM Mux and Demux. The recent FTTH push in Japan has renewed the significance of this technology for passive optical network (PON) application. This paper reviews the past development of this technology, compare it with competing technologies, and outline the future role of this technology in the evolving optical communications.
