The authors demonstrate an integrated add-drop filter with true reconfigurability. It can drop any combination of eight wavelengths to any of eight drop ports, with less than 7 dB loss. Its features are suitable for mass production: use of standard silica waveguide technology, double-rejection switching and filtering for all paths, compactness, and power-efficient thermooptic switching.
