Paper Abstract

Using a beveled-edge to coupled optical signals into a waveguiding plate, a path-reversed substrate-guided wave holographic interconnection is employed for a WDDM with a channel wavelength spacing as small as 2 nm. A waveguide grating with a 45 degree incident angle and a 45 degree diffraction angle is fabricated using 20 micrometers thick DuPont photopolymer film HRF 600 X 001. The dispersion and the 3 dB bandwidth of the device are measured to be 0.18 degrees/nm and 20 nm, respectively. A four-channel wavelength demultiplexing is demonstrated at 796 nm, 798 nm, 800 nm and 802 nm with no crosstalk observed. A one-to-five cascaded 4-channel WDDM with +/- 5 percent energy uniformity under an s-polarization is also demonstrated to increase the user-sharing capacity. Twenty fanout channels are experimentally achieved.
