Paper Abstract

The diffraction characteristics are analyzed for a polymer arrayed-waveguide grating (AWG) multiplexer around the central wavelength of 1.55 μm with the wavelength spacing of 1.6 nm. The diffraction loss and diffraction efficiency in the input and the output slab waveguide are investigated and discussed for different values of parameters, such as the core width, pitch of adjacent waveguides, the number of arrayed waveguides, taper end width of waveguides, and number of output wavelength. Finally, we give a set of parameters which have been optimized in this device.
