HIGH PERFORMANCE PLANAR LIGHTWAVE CIRCUIT DEVICES FOR LARGE CAPACITY TRANSMISSION
Hiroshi Takahashi1; 1NTT Photonics Laboratories, Japan.
Both high density multiplexing and high speed transmission are required for large capacity networks supporting broadband service penetration. This paper reviews recent progress on key devices based on silica waveguide lightwave circuits for such systems.

ERROR-FREE TRANSMISSION OF DPSK AT 5 GB/S USING A SILICON MICRORING MODULATOR
Kishore Padmaraju1, Noam Ophir1, Qianfan Xu2, Bradley Schmidt2, Jagat Shakya2, Sasikanth Manipatruni2, Michal Lipson2, Keren Bergman1; 1Electrical Engineering, Columbia University, USA; 2Electrical and Computer Engineering, Cornell University, USA.
 We demonstrate the first error-free transmission of DPSK using a microring modulator, with a power penalty of 1.1 dB in comparison to a commercial LiNbO3 phase modulator. Additionally, long-haul transmission of microring-modulated DPSK is characterized.

ULTRA-LOW-LOSS SINGLE-MODE SILICON NITRIDE WAVEGUIDES WITH 0.7 DB/M PROPAGATION LOSS
Jared Bauters1, Martijn Heck1, Demis D. John1, Ming-Chun Tien1, Wenzao Li1, Jon S. Barton1, Daniel J. Blumenthal1, John Bowers1, Arne Leinse2, Rene G. Heideman2; 1ECE, UC Santa Barbara, USA; 2LioniX BV, Netherlands.
We report an approach to make ultra-low-loss waveguides using high-index-contrast stoichiometric silicon nitride. A record low single-mode propagation loss of 0.70 ± 0.02 dB/m was achieved while multi-mode designs gave fundamental mode loss as low as 0.43 ± 0.04 dB/m.

INTEGRATED DISPERSION COMPENSATOR BASED ON SOI TAPERED GRATINGS
Ivano Giuntoni1, David Stolarek2, Andrzej Gajda1, J├╝rgen Bruns1, Lars Zimmermann1,2, Bernd Tillack1,2, Klaus Petermann1; 1Technische Universit├Ąt Berlin, Germany; 2IHP GmbH, Germany.
The realization of an integrated drop-filter based on tapered Bragg gratings for the compensation of the chromatic dispersion is presented. The device permits the compensation of a dispersion of 500~ps/nm over a WDM channel.

HETEROGENEOUS INTEGRATION OF HIGH-SPEED INP PDS ON SILICA-BASED PLANAR LIGHTWAVE CIRCUIT PLATFORM
Yu Kurata1, Yusuke Nasu1, Munehisa Tamura1, Haruki Yokoyama1, Yoshifumi Muramoto1; 1NTT Photonics Laboratories, NTT Corporation, Japan.
We demonstrate the first heterogeneous integration of high-speed InP PDs on a silica-based PLC platform. 28 Gbaud QPSK signal detection is realized using a coherent detector integrated with four PDs and a 90° optical hybrid.
