Paper Abstract

We propose using slow light structures to greatly enhance the spectral performance of on-chip spectrometers. We design a calzone photonic crystal line-defect waveguide which can have large group index over a certain wavelength range. An arrayed waveguide gratings (AWGs) is studied as an example, and the performance of such a slow-light AWG is analyzed numerically.
