Paper Abstract

We present multiaperture stationary spectrometers in planar optical waveguides. The devices are based on the spatial heterodyning technique, do not require moving parts, and use Fourier transformation for spectra retrieval. The design is based on arrays of waveguide interferometers with linearly increasing optical path delay. The spectrometers have increased optical throughput due to multiple input waveguides. We discuss design, fabrication, and first experimental results for these multiaperture spectrometers implemented in silicon-on-insulator (SOI) ridge waveguides.
