Paper Abstract

A 12-channel Littrow-type wavelength division multiplexing coupler has been developed.[1] This coupler exhibits a maximum insertion loss of 10 dB per mux-demux pair per channel. Crosstalk isolation for seven channels is at least 25 dB and on the remaining five channels at least 20 dB. Near end isolation is at least 27 dB. This coupler was tested over the temperature range of 00 C to +40° C with less than 1 nm change in coupler response.
