    Abstract

    In the last years much effort has been made to arrive at optical integrated circuits with high complexity and advanced functionality for application in optical networks. For this aim high index contrast structures, like optical microresonators, are employed that allow for a large number of functional elements within a given chip area: VLSI photonics. Experimental results of work performed at MESA+ will be reported including a microresonator-based, ultra-compact reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer operating at 40 Gbit/s and fabricated in SiON technology. In addition a discussion will be given of new challenges and possible solutions.
