    In this paper, we propose a novel design for an integrated-optic WDM cross-connect which can be used in various wavelength routing network applications. This device is based on integrating a two-dimensional array of Bragg diffraction cells at cross points of input/output co-planner waveguides. The wavelength tuning of the individual Bragg cells can be chosen to construct a WDM cross-connect, with any number of required input/output interconnections. These cross-connects have proven extremely important in the design and deployment of wide area/nationwide all-optical networks.
