Paper Abstract

Wavelength division multiplexing and demultiplexing (WDDM) techniques are the two key technologies for upgrading optical communication system bandwidth. The use of WDM technologies not only provides high speed optical communication links, but also provide advantages such as higher data rates, format transparency, and self-routing. Over the past twenty years, many kinds of WDDM device technologies have been developed and demonstrated. WDDM devices using dispersive photopolymer or dichromated gelatin volume holographic gratings have been recently reported. In this paper, we report an integrated four-channel multimode fiber compatible WDDM system with four semiconductor lasers operating at 750, 780, 810 and 840 nm, respectively. The device is demonstrated using the combination of graded index lenses, photopolymer based holographic gratings and substrate-guided waves.
