Abstract
A procedure for designing a polymeric AWG is presented by considering the main required specifications. An optimal design is obtained for a 8 x 8 polymeric AWG operating around 1.55 µm witha channel spacing ofO.8nm. The design is verified by a simulation with a beam propagation method. For the designed AWG, the crosstalk (for adjacent channels) is well below —40dB and the insertion loss is about 1.6dB and the loss non-uniformity is less than 1dB. Effects of some fabrication errors on the performances ofthe designed AWG are discussed.
