Paper Abstract

In this paper, a grating assisted MDM-PDM hybrid (de)multiplexer based on the silicon-on-insulator (SOI) platform has been proposed and analyzed using coupled mode theory with effective index method (EIM). The proposed device consists of a multimode wide waveguide and five single mode narrow waveguides. The quasi- TE/TM modes of the wide waveguide are phase matched with the respective contra-propagating fundamental quasi-TE/TM modes of the single mode narrow waveguides. The phase matching conditions are satisfied by using different period gratings, which are surface corrugated on the wide waveguide. The proposed device structure exhibits good crosstalk, insertion loss, and return loss values.
