Paper Abstract

The multimode interference structure is conventionally used as a splitter/combiner. In this paper, it is optimised as an edge filter for ratiometric wavelength measurement, which can be used in demodulation of fiber Bragg grating sensing. The global optimization algorithm-adaptive simulated annealing is introduced in the design of multimode interference structure including the length and width of the multimode waveguide section, and positions of the input and output waveguides. The designed structure shows a suitable spectral response for wavelength measurement and a good fabrication tolerance.
