Abstract

An 11-channel 1-GHz bandwidth silicon photonic AWG was fabricated and measured in the lab. Two photonic architectures are presented: (1) RF-envelope detector, and (2) RF downconvertor for digital systems. The RF-envelope detector architecture was modeled based on the demonstrated AWG characteristics to determine estimated system-level RF receiver performance.
