Abstract
Planar lightwave circuits (PLCs) are waveguide devices that integrate fiber-matched optical waveguides on Silicon or glass substrate to provide an efficient means of interaction for the guided-wave optical signals. PLCs provide various important functionalities for optical wavelength division multiplexing (WDM), time division multiplexing (TDM) systems and subscriber networks. This paper reviews the recent progress and future prospects of PLC technologies especially in FTTH and GMPLS (Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching) systems.
