Paper Abstract

We propose a novel 8-channel wavelength multimode interference (MMI) demultiplexer in slot waveguide structures that operated at 1530 nm, 1535 nm, 1540 nm, 1545 nm, 1550 nm, 1555 nm, 1560 nm and 1565 nm wavelengths. Gallium nitride (GaN) surrounded by silicon (Si) was founded as suitable materials for the slot-waveguide structures. The proposed device was designed by seven 1x2 MMI couplers, fourteen S-band and one input taper. Numerical investigations were carried out on the geometrical parameters by using a full vectorial-beam propagation method (FVBPM). Simulation results show that the proposed device can transmit 8-channel that works in the whole C-band (1530- 1565 nm) with low crosstalk ((-19.97)-(-13.77) dB) and bandwidth (1.8-3.6 nm). Thus, the device can be very useful in optical networking systems that work on dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) technology.
