Abstract

Dual-tapered auxiliary waveguides at the exit of the waveguide array are introduced to improve the channel uniformity of an Si-nanowire-based arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) demultiplexer. By using a hybrid simulation method, the dual-tapered auxiliary waveguides of the AWG demultiplexer are optimized reliably and efficiently. A 12-channel AWG demultiplexer is designed as an example, and a small nonuniformity (< 0.5 dB) is achieved.
