Paper Abstract

Interconnection length and packaging density are important parameters in channel-waveguide- based photonic integrated circuits. In this paper, a multiple channel crosstalk model is developed and then applied, together with experimental results, to study the minimum channel separation and maximum channel length in a highly parallel single-mode channel waveguide array (SMCWA). Further investigation of the tradeoff between channel packaging density and interconnection length due to channel cross-coupling indicates that, in order to obtain a desirable interconnection length, it is often necessary to separate the waveguides in the array on the order of several (3 to approximately 7) channel dimensions.
