Paper Abstract

The design and simulation of a new optical add-drop multiplexer (OADM) made of two pairs of grating-frustrated directional couplers is presented. Design theory and simulation are introduced to support is feasibility. The directional couplers are proposed to use polymeric waveguides as the cores. The inverted-ridge waveguide fabrication is proposed using lithography and etching process. The proper dimensions and parameters of each waveguides for OADM are simulated. The designed OADM is 1550 nm wavelength with add-drip filters, bandwidth 20 nm, and 80% peak transmissions showing the application for wavelength division multiplexing (WDM).
