Paper Abstract

On the basis of the arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) multiplexer theory, some important parameters are optimized for the structural design of a polymer AWG multiplexer around the central wavelength of 1.55micrometers with the wavelength spacing of 1.6nm. These parameters include the thickness and width of the guide core, mode effective refraction indicees and group refractive index. Pitch of adjacent waveguides, diffraction order, path length difference of adjacent arrayed waveguides, focal length of slab waveguides, free spectral range, number of input/output waveguides, and that of arrayed waveguides.
