Abstract

A novel iterative projection-type optimal design algorithm of arrayed waveguide gratings (AWGs) with a flat spectral response is proposed based on the Fourier optics model of AWG. The enhancement of the spectral-response flatness of the AWG is demonstrated, with an analysis on the trade-off relationship between band flatness and crosstalk.
