Abstract

Arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) is one of the important components in Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology. It offers high wavelength selectivity, low insertion loss, small size and potentially lower cost. This project involved the investigation of an A WG device performance using A WG multi/demultiplexer. The work is concentrated on three of the AWG applications which are multiplexer, demultiplexer and photonic router. A measurement of insertion loss in 4 channels, 100 GHz A WG is described. The crosstalk and isolation predicted by Gaussian models through simulation are compared with experiment and the results are discussed. All the simulation and verification process is developed in MATLAB environment. Results show that the optimum operating range is between 300μW to 600μW. The best device performance is at the input power of 400μW. The crosstalk: value obtained for both simulation and measurement is greater than - 30dB while with the input power of 500μ W; the insertion loss value achieved is between 0.47425 to 3.6944dB.
