Abstract

Research on photonic integrated circuits (PICs) initially focused on the technical challenges of combining a variety of distinct optical waveguide elements with a minimum of fabrication and epitaxial complexity. Now, a number of PICs are already commercially available in diverse application areas ranging from low-chirp integrated laser-electroabsorption modulator sources to high-power master oscillator-power amplifier (MOPA) sources. Accompanying the emergence of these and other commercial products has been the refinement of several manufacturable fabrication technologies. The evolution of PIC research has now clearly shifted from a technology push to prove that integration is possible, to making difficult choices regarding which PIC architectures are of true commercial interest.
