Paper Abstract

A novel arrayed-waveguide grating (AWG) based on unbent waveguides is proposed. Two graded-index planar waveguides (GISLAB) are used as input and output planar waveguides, respectively, and the arrayed waveguides are replaced by unbent waveguides, which are photosensitive waveguides exposed to UV light twice. Next, the 2-D semivectorial beam propagation method is adopted to simulate the light transmitting process in the device, and the simulation shows that this device and the design are feasible.
