Abstract
We describe state-of-the-art optical communication subsystems that leverage advances in optical components based on microphotonic integrated circuits. The optical ICs are based on nanoengineered polymeric materials with optimal optical, electrical, mechanical, and thermal properties. Photonic components based on these polymeric chips have met all performance and reliability requirements in the telecommunication industry, and passed Telcordia GR-1209 and GR-1221 qualification. Subsystems based on these components, such as variable multiplexers (VMUX) and reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers (ROADM), have met the requirements of Telcordia GR-1312 and GR-63, and are deployed in optical networks.
