Paper Abstract

We report dispersions resulting from a slot device (SD) in silica-based arrayed-waveguide grating (AWG). A SD is used to produce flattened passbands and we show the dependence on the bandwidth, the crosstalk, the ripple, and the chromatic dispersion (CD) of the passband in the presence of such a device. A comparison with other known techniques is also given. The device has been developed on a high index silica-based PLC platform but can be implemented on higher index contrast platforms.
