Abstract

In this paper, a design of an integrated wavelength-insensitive laser Doppler velocimeter (LDV) has been proposed using planar lightwave circuit (PLC). The proposed LDV uses arrayed waveguide gratings (AWGs) that can be fabricated using PLC technology. Its characteristics are simulated using a design model based on grating equations for AWGs. The simulation results indicate that wavelength-insensitive operation can be almost obtained by optimizing the design parameters of the proposed structure without assembly of bulk diffractive gratings or other optical elements.
