Abstract
The role of active arrayed-waveguide gratings (AWGs) in future dynamic wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) networking and routing is investigated. Simulations are done using the beam propagation method (BPM). The results indicate that active AWGs can be used in multiple-channel control with an SNR up to 19 dB and dynamic dispersion compensation of up to 160 ps/nm.
