In this paper, the implementation of Gaussian apodized volume grating for a demultiplexer is presented. A 42-channel demultiplexer based on that grating is optically demonstrated. By using the Gaussian apodized grating, the crosstalk level between two channels is reduced down to -35dB. The bandwidth of a channel is 0.18 nm. The two adjacent fibers are seperated by 122.5-μm horizontal distance providing the wavelength spacing between each channel of 0.4 nm. Besides, for all 42 channels, the interchannel uniformity of 1.5 dB has been obtained.
