Perfect Chirped Echelle Grating Wavelength Multiplexor: Design and Optimization

  title={Perfect Chirped Echelle Grating Wavelength Multiplexor: Design and Optimization},
  author={Richard John Lycett and D. F. G. Gallagher and V. J. Brulis},
  journal={IEEE Photonics Journal},
A new method for designing an echelle-type diffraction grating for wavelength division multiplexing (WDM), which is tuned to a single stigmatic point, is introduced. The new grating is defined by the mode and wavelength of operation in a slab waveguide, the position of the waveguides, the order of diffraction, and an arbitrary path, which is called the grating line, upon which individual facets are positioned, blazed, and curved via the outlined algorithm. A systematic design process for… CONTINUE READING
