Paper Abstract

An important area in integrated optics application is optical interferometer which may benefit from the rigidity of guided-wave optical construction and the precision of optical alignment using photolithographic procedures. Both the mirror reflectors, beam splitter/ combiners can be made of periodic structures. The design aspects of periodic gratings in planar optical waveguide and a sagnac interferometer using periodic gratings are described.
