Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology provides many options to the design of flexible alloptical networks. To exploit these options to their full potential, Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) for wavelength routing and switching will be indispensable. One of the basic building blocks of such PICs is the planar phased-array (PHASAR) wavelength demultiplexer. The monolithic integration of PHASARs with photodetectors, amplifiers, and other waveguide-based (passive) components is discussed.
