Paper Abstract

We present the design of 20-channel, 50-GHz Si3N4 based AWG applying our proprietary AWG-Parameters tool. For the simulations of the AWG layout we used PHASAR photonics tool from Optiwave. The simulated transmission characteristics were then evaluated applying our AWG-Analyzer tool. We studied the influence of one of the design parameters – the separation between input/output waveguides, dx on the channel crosstalk. The results show that there is some minimum waveguide separation necessary to keep the crosstalk between transmitting channels low. The AWGs were designed for TM-polarized light with a central wavelength of 850 nm. They will later be used in a photonic integrated circuit dedicated to medical diagnostic imaging applications.
