This Spotlight provides an overview of the life cycle of arrayed waveguide gratings (AWGs), from design and simulation to evaluation and technological verification. The book describes the AWG design procedure by applying a new software tool. It discusses the appropriateness of different commercially available photonics tools, and their advantages and disadvantages. To solve the problems posed by evaluation, 19 transmission parameters are defined. The book demonstrates that there is very good agreement between designed and simulated/measured transmission parameters. Finally, the book describes AWG designs with excellent optical demultiplexing properties.
This Spotlight aims to provide an overview of the life cycle of optical MUX/DeMUX based on arrayed waveguide gratings (AWGs), from the principle,
design, and simulation through evaluation and technological verification.
