Performance Optimization of Flat-Top Passband Arrayed Waveguide Grating Demultiplexers.


1st edition 2000. 118 pages, € 64,00.

ISBN 3-89649-550-X






This book deals with the implementation and optimization of flat top passband wavelength division multiplexers. Several fundamental effects like the refractive index change in waveguide bends and the influence of focal point correction schemes for the free space coupler have been comprehensively investigated and are described in detail. With these findings, flat top passband wavelength division multiplexers have been realized. Different options for obtaining flat top passband wavelength response have been implemented and are compared. A theory is introduced which describes and explains the connection between wavelength response peak shape and pulse broadening. The theory has been confirmed in high speed data transmission experiments with the realized multiplexers.


Keywords: flat top passband wavelength, refractive index change, focal point correction schemes, free space coupler, pulse broadening
