Paper Abstract

We have demonstrated a bidirectional wavelength division (de)multiplexer (WDM) on the silicon-on-insulator platform. An excellent match of the peak transmission wavelength of each channel between the two AMMIs was achieved. This type of device is ideal for integrated optical transceivers where the transmission wavelengths are required to match with the receiving wavelengths. The device also benefits from simple fabrication (as only a single lithography and etching step is required), improved convenience for the transceiver layout design, a reduction in tuning power and circuitry, and efficient use of layout space.
