Abstract

We propose and demonstrate an optical 60° hybrid for demodulating optical signals with six-level DPSK modulation format. The proposed device consisting of a paired-interference 26MMI coupler, phase shifters, and 22MMI couplers with an asymmetric splitting ratio of 7228 exhibited hexagonal phase response over a C-band range.
