2001 Nonlinear Optics for the Information Society  
Device demand J Mux/ Demux (WDM, TDM) J Wavelength converter J 3R regenerators (single-, multi -channel) J OADM, OXC ( circuit switching, packet switching) J Active compensators : PMD, GVD J Logic gates (?) Summary J Ever growing bandwidth on offer for optical transmission systems and optical networks J Electronic limits -> alternative OTDM and DWDM+ETDM J Requirement for devices in the routing process. J Non-linear application already proposed : main challenger SOAs and Non-linear fibres. J New candidates and new requirement.
