Abstract

We propose and demonstrate the principle of a novel adaptive wavelength division multiplexer/demultiplexer structure based on Opto-VLSI processing. By driving an Opto-VLSI processor with an appropriate phase hologram, optical signals of arbitrary wavelengths from different input fiber ports can be multiplexed into a common output fiber port. In addition, wavelength division multiplexed channels of arbitrary wavelength spacings can also be demultiplexed and dynamically routed into arbitrary output fiber ports. A proof-of-principle 1×3 adaptive multiplexer/demultiplexers is experimentally demonstrated.
