Paper Abstract

The design, packaging, and performance of a novel 32 channel, 100GHz dense wavelength division demultiplexer (DWDM) using the 22w' diffraction order of an Echelle grating is described. A fully packaged prototype operating in the 1 .54 to 1 .57-rim spectral range is built and tested. The insertion losses of all 32 channels are within -3.0±0.2 dB. The crosstalk between adjacent channels for all the 32 channels is in the neighborhood of -30dB, and average 1dB optical pass band is O.256nm. Key words: Wavelength division demultiplexing, Echelle grating, dispersion ability, DWDM packaging
