Paper Abstract

An optical fiber communication system can be used much more efficiently with the addition of wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM). which effectively provides multiple transmission lines over a single fiber using different wavelengths of optical energy. An integrated optic WDM system which utilizes a wavelength-dependent angularly dispersive diffraction grating is designed from fundamental equations. Such a device has many advantages over competing WDM systems.
