Paper Abstract

A fiber optic multiplexer and demultiplexer system is described. The Wavelength Division Multiplexing system produces its own spectral sources through a "slicing" of the wide spectral bandwidth of LED sources into individual narrow bandwidth data channels. This technique provides an inexpensive method of creating several WDM channels from a single type of low cost LED. The multiplexer/demultiplexer system uses holographic aberration reduced concave diffraction gratings as the sole optical components.
