Paper Abstract

A compact dual-structure waveguide triplexer which consists of two waveguide gratings with different period and fill factor is presented. It not only achieves efficient coupling between single mode fiber and a silicon-on-insulator optical waveguide, but also realizes effectively splitting, especially, for three different wavelengths, i.e. 1.31μm, 1.49μm and 1.55μm. By appropriate choice of waveguide/grating parameters including thicknesses, periods, height, and fill factor, to optimize the mode matching, and improve coupling efficiency and decrease the value of crosstalk, the coupling efficiency for 1.55μm wavelength can reach about 70% for TE polarization light over the 40 nm wavelength bandwidth. The crosstalk is about -12dB. Simultaneously, for 1.31μm and 1.49μm, the coupling efficiency is 58% and 40%, respectively. Moreover, the crosstalk of the left and the right branch of waveguide is -10dB and -14dB, respectively.
