Abstract
A hybrid multiplexer (HMUX) for wavelength/mode-division (WDM/MDM) based on photonic crystals (PCs) is proposed. The device can realize TE0 and TE1 modes multiplexing at wavelengths of 1550nm and 1570nm. According to quasi phase matching, a structure with an asymmetrical parallel waveguide (APW) was used to achieve mode conversion. The transmittance of the TE0 mode at wavelengths of 1550nm and 1570nm are 98.4% and 96.3%, the corresponding insertion loss are 0.07dB and 0.16dB respectively. The crosstalk of the TE0 mode at wavelengths of 1550nm and 1570nm are -27.66dB and -27.32dB respectively. The transmittance of the TE1 mode at wavelengths of 1550nm and 1570nm are 95.8% and 93.9%, the corresponding insertion loss are 0.19dB and 0.27dB respectively. The crosstalk of the TE1 mode at wavelengths of 1550nm and 1570nm are -38.73dB and -38.9dB respectively. The PC-based HMUX has great performance, and it will have great application potential in future ultrahigh-speed and large-capacity communication systems.
