Paper Abstract

The thermal instability of central wavelength of AWG is analyzed theoretically. The analysis reveals that waveguide dispersion caused by temperature fluctuation of AWG is the primary source of the thermal instability whereas the thermal instability due to photo-elastic effect and thermal expansion of waveguides is comparatively small.
