Paper Abstract

We first review the working principle of grating-based wavelength division (de)multiplexers [WD(D)M] for optical networks. We also address issues regarding optical design of grating-based WD(D)Ms for commercial uses. Next, several grating-based WD(D)M structures are analyzed. Based on these designs and analyses, we develop several versions of highly reliable WD(D)Ms, from coarse to dense, with low insertion loss and low cost. Last, we present the experimental data for these WD(D)Ms.
