WP4 - Silicon wiring

In this workpackage we study the passive components needed for routing and filtering the optical signals. These will be fabricated using silicon nanophotonic waveguides. The tasks within this workpackage are:

Left: 8x8 silicon lambda router. Right: flat passband AWG demultiplexer
