Abstract
A scalar diffraction model was developed that simulates throughput and phase information vs. wavelength in MEMS based multi-channel gain equalization applications. Group delay and chromatic dispersion are determined and compared to that measured on a commercial device. Basic features and magnitudes of the model and device data are found to correlate extremely well enabling device performance to be better predicted during the MEMS modeling phase of new product development.
