Advances in InP/InGaAsP growth technology suggest a new optimism for the potential of III-V Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs). PICs may provide higher performance and new functionality in areas such as high bit-rate transmission, coherent transmission and wavelength division multiplexing. Among the key elements required to realize this potential will be low-loss waveguide structures which are compatible with active devices (lasers, detectors, switches). Examples to be discussed include tunable and extended cavity laser structures, filters, and monolithic narrow-band channel-drop photodetectors.
