Abstract

Integration of free-space-wave add–drop multiplexers that consist of focusing grating couplers (FGCs) and distributed Bragg reflectors (DBRs) in thin-film waveguides have been investigated for construction of an intraboard wavelength-division-multiplexing optical interconnection. Compact optics of a Lloyd mirror configuration and a contact-type mask aligner were combined as an interference exposure system for fabrication of DBRs of 300μm coupling length. DBRs were integrated with FGCs on a thin-film waveguide on a glass substrate for two-channel wavelength-drop demultiplexing from guided waves to free-space waves. Measured outcoupled wavelengths of two free-space waves from two pairs of a FGC and a DBR agreed with the design values of 845and 849nm.
