Paper Abstract

Using an arrayed waveguide gratings (AWG) based demultiplexer, a simple channel gain equalizer can be designed. The gain equalization and blocking functions are realized by the hybrid waveguide based variable optical attenuators fabricated on the output waveguides of the demultiplexer. This paper discusses the operation principle of the design and presents some simulation results.
