Paper Abstract

In this paper, we first review the working principle of grating-base wavelength division (de)multiplexers (WD(D)M) for optical networks. Then key device parameters for WDM multiplexers, including insertion loss, isolation, channel passband, wavelength accuracy, polarization-dependent loss and temperature sensitivity are provided to evaluate the performance for the devices. After that, issues regarding optical design of grating-based WD(D)Ms for commercial uses are addressed. Next, several grating-based WD(D)M structures are analyzed with the procedures to optimize design of grating-based wavelength division (de)multiplexers. Based on these designs and analyses, we give the procedures of optimal design of devices with experimental data.
