We report a stationary Fourier-transform spectrometer chip implemented in silicon microphotonic waveguides. The device comprises an array of 32 Mach-Zehnder interferometers (MZIs) with linearly increasing optical path delays between the MZI arms across the array. The optical delays are achieved by using Si-wire waveguides arranged in tightly coiled spirals(More)
Concept, theory and simulations of a new type of waveguide device, a multiaperture Fourier-transform planar waveguide spectrometer, are presented. The spectrometer is formed by an array of Mach-Zehnder interferometers generating a wavelength dependent spatial fringe pattern at the array output. The input light spectrum is calculated using a discrete Fourier(More)
We present an analysis of Fourier-transform arrayed waveguide gratings in the Fresnel diffraction regime. We report a distinct spatial modulation of the interference pattern referred to as the Moiré-Talbot effect. The effect and its influence in a FT AWG device is explained by deriving an original analytical expression for the modulated field, and is also(More)
We review two emerging concepts in planar waveguide multiplexers and spectrometers. The first concept is a planar waveguide demultiplexer with the wavelength dispersive properties provided by a diffraction grating formed in the sidewall of a curved Si waveguide. The phase errors are minimized using an apodized design with a chirped grating, yielding a(More)
We review recent advances in silicon photonic arrayed waveguide grating and sub-wavelength grating devices developed at the NRC Canada. We present three original microspectrometer concepts, namely a compact 50 channel AWG microspectrometer with a spectral resolution of 1 A and a total chip size of 8 x 8 mm", a Fourier- transform AWG with a markedly(More)
We report a spatial heterodyne Fourier-transform spectrometer implemented with an array of optical fiber interferometers. This configuration generates a wavelength-dependent stationary interferogram from which the input spectrum is retrieved in a single shot without scanning elements. Furthermore, fabrication and experimental deviations from the ideal(More)
