Abstract
Recent progress on polymer-based photonic devices and hybrid photonic integration technology using InP-based active components is presented. High performance thermo-optic components, including compact polymer variable optical attenuators and switches are powerful tools to regulate and control the light flow in the optical backbone. Polymer arrayed waveguide gratings integrated with InP laser and detector arrays function as low-cost optical line terminals (OLTs) in the WDM-PON network. External cavity tunable lasers combined with C/L band thin-film filter, on-chip U-groove and 45 degrees mirrors construct a compact, bi-directional and color-less optical network unit (ONU). A tunable laser integrated with VOAs, TFEs and two 90 degrees hybrids builds the optical front-end of a colorless, dual-polarization coherent receiver. Multicore polymer waveguides and multi-step 45 degrees mirrors are demonstrated as bridging devices between the spatial-division-multiplexing transmission technology using multi-core fibers and the conventional PLC-based photonic platforms, appealing to the fast development of dense 3D photonic integration.
