Paper Abstract

This paper addresses the topic of the simulation analysis of arrayed waveguide grating demultiplexers. These are very important devices used for WDM communications and, being quite a complex structure, they need accurate and efficient simulation tools to evaluate their transmission spectral characteristics. The objective of this paper is to present a new formulation that has the advantage of allowing a faster yet rigorous analysis. Comparisons between the new simulation technique and other currently used are presented and discussed.
