Paper Abstract

We review the athermalization techniques that have been proposed for AWGs and discuss the advantages and disadvantages provided by each approach. We then describe our recent progress on the design and fabrication of a silica-based athermal AWG with a 1.5%-▵ waveguide and report its compactness and excellent optical characteristics including its extremely low insertion loss.
