Preface Optical devices in communication and computation have indeed a significant impact on our daily life and will continually be the leading revolutionizing technology in upcoming decades. This book presents a comprehensive account on recent advances in optical devices in communication and computing. The first section, advances in theoretical analysis, gives solid mathematical analysis on zero loss condition for optical communication, dynamic maps in laser resonator, as well as evanescent wave for superlens effect. In the following section a series of novel structures aiming at applications such as solar cells, inter-connections, waveguide, optical memory, nanoplasmonic filtering, etc. are presented. Not only that the novel structural materials are used in biomedical cancer therapy, but also the nature inspires the design of innovative optical structures. In the third section, functional optical materials, such as molecular level hybridization and fluidic optical lens are reported. This book may serve as an invaluable reference for researchers working in optical communications and photonics as well as for engineers who are conceiving new developments based on the advances in this field.

1. Introduction OXADMs are element which provide the capabilities of add and drop function and cross connecting traffic in the network, similar to OADM and OXC. OXADM consists of three main subsystem; a wavelength selective demultiplexer, a switching subsystem and a wavelength multiplexer. Each OXADM is expected to handle at least two distinct wavelength channels each with a coarse granularity of 2.5 Gbps of higher (signals with finer granularities are handled by logical switch node such as SDH/SONET digital cross connects or ATM switches). There are eight ports for add and drop functions, which are controlled by four lines of MEMs optical switch. The other four lines of MEMs switches are used to control the wavelength routing function between two different paths. The functions of OXADM include node termination, drop and add, routing, multiplexing and also providing mechanism of restoration for point-to-point, ring and mesh metropolitan and also customer access network in FTTH. The asymmetrical architecture of OXADM consists of 3 parts; selective port, add/drop operation, and path routing. Selective port permits only the interest wavelength pass through and acts as a filter. While add and drop function can be implemented in second part of OXADM architecture. The signals can then be re-routed to any port of output or/and perform an accumulation function which multiplex all signals onto one path and then exit to any interest output port. This will be done by the third part. OXADM can also perform ‘U’ turn to enable the line protection (Ring Protection) in the event of breakdown condition. This will be done by the first and third part. These two features have differed OXADM with the other existing device such as OADM and OXC. The purpose of this study was to obtain the maximum allowed loss for the device OXADM and input power required to maintain the satisfactory performance of the BER (BER
