Abstract
We describe recent advances in optical communication components, modules, and subsystems based on planar polymer technologies. The dynamic organic photonic integrated circuits exhibit ultra low power consumption through thermo-optic actuation for switching, routing, and tuning. The components (switches, optical cross-connects (OXC), variable optical attenuators (VOA), tunable couplers, etc.) have state-of-the-art performance, meet reliability requirements in the telecommunication industry including Telcordia GR-1209 and GR-1221 qualification, and are broadly deployed in the field. The modules and subsystems include variable multiplexers (VMUX) and reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers (ROADM), and they meet the requirements of Telcordia GR-1312 and GR-63 protocols.
