Paper Abstract

Close-form expressions are used to analyze the spatial and angular linearity of the out-coupling volume holograms in wavelength division multiplexing/demultiplexing (WDM/WDDM). Optimal spatial linear out-coupling regimes are located. Some design criteria for volume holographic WDDM applicable to 800nm, 1300nm, and 1550nm optical wavelength window are addressed. As a design example, we deploy these criteria to design a passive surface normal input/output wavelength division demultiplexer working in the wavelength range of 768-864 nm. Coupling of the demultiplexed optical signal from the substrate modes to a linear multi-mode fiber array is verified with experiment. The importance of the spatial linearity of the out-coupling in volume holographic WDDM structure is highlighted and possible coupling of the signal to linear single-mode fiber array is mentioned.
