Abstract

A low-cost and high-performance wavelength division (de)multiplexing structure in the mid-IR wavelength range is demonstrated on the silicon-on-insulator platform using an interleaved angled multimode interferometer (AMMI). As compared to a single AMMI, the channel count was doubled and the channel spacing halved with negligible extra insertion loss and crosstalk and with only a slight increase in device footprint. The device requires only single lithography and etching steps for fabrication. Potential is also shown for achieving improved performance with further optimized design.
