We discuss the design and development of a slow-light spectrometer on a chip with the particular example of an arrayed waveguide grating based spectrometer. We investigate designs for slow-light elements based on photonic crystal waveguides and grating structures. The designs will be fabricated using electron-beam lithography and UV photolithography on a silicon-on-insulator platform. We optimize the geometry of these structures by numerical simulations to achieve a uniform and large group index over the largest possible wavelength range.
