We present a basic configuration of an unique integrated-optic arrayed-waveguide grating (AWG) multiplexer with loop-back optical paths and demonstrate an add-drop multiplexer (ADM), a network access terminal, and a wavelength channel selector for dense-WDM ring or bus networks, as three useful examples of its attractive applications. A key device in these components is a silica-glass based 1.55 μm polarization-insensitive 32×32 AWG multiplexer chip with 0.8 nm channel spacing which is fabricated using planar lightwave circuit (PLC) technologies. Fine operation in their new functional components is achieved by using the AWG multiplexer module having low insertion loss of 3.9 dB and low interchannel crosstalk of less than -28 dB
