At last week s Integrated Photonics Research, Silicon and Nanophotonics Conference (IPR, San Diego, July 13-16, 2014), imec has demonstrated improved performance of various key building blocks for high-density low-power wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) optical interconnects in silicon.
Imec has demonstrated, at wafer-scale, a ring-based Wavelength-Division Multiplexing filter with an improved thermo-optic tuning efficiency better than 1nm/mW per channel, a thermally tunable 28Gb/s ring modulator with an efficiency of 260pm/mW and a high-speed germanium photodetector achieving an average responsitivity of 0.
However, the emergence of wavelength-division multiplexing
now requires that chromatic dispersion itself be measured over the [approximately equal to]80 nm optical bandwidth occupied by multiple wavelength channels.
This exhibit will showcase optical cross connect (OXC) devices and the 40 Gbps wavelength-division multiplexing
(WDM) devices that are key to the next generation of optical communications networks.
It provides legacy time-division multiplexing (TDM), metro Ethernet, storage area networking (SAN) connectivity as well as wavelength services through integrated dense wavelength-division multiplexing
(DWDM) and reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) functionalities.

The G4-100 represents the first off-the-shelf optical dense wavelength-division multiplexing
(DWDM) component enabling optical system designers to achieve best-in-class optical transport solutions without compromising network flexibility, reliability, and simplicity.
These specifications are essential for measuring the higher channel counts and narrowly spaced wavelengths in dense wavelength-division multiplexing
