Abstract [en]

The spectral response of an arrayed-waveguide grating (AWG) demultiplexer is calculated by simulating the field propagation in the output section of an AWG with a wide-angle beam propagation method (BPM) in a cylindrical coordinate system. As in a practical design of an AWG demultiplexer, each output waveguide consists of two straight sections connected by a bending section. The spectral response obtained by the present algorithm is more accurate than those obtained with two popular approximate methods, namely, the conventional overlapped integral method and the standard BPM for radially straight and infinitely long output waveguides. With the present algorithm, the dependence of the spectral response on the parameters of the output section is analyzed. The channel crosstalk and the 3 dB passband width of the spectral response depend mainly on the length of the first straight section, the end separation and the angular separation of the output waveguides. The bending section results in an asymmetrical spectral response with remarkable sidelobes which can be reduced by increasing the bending radius.
