Abstract (40-Word Limit): We demonstrate a compact 16-channel 200GHz polarization diversity wavelength de-multiplexer circuit using two silicon AWGs and 2-D grating couplers. Insertion loss and crosstalk are 2.6dB and 21.5dB, respectively. The maximum polarization dependent wavelength shift is 0.115nm The total circuit size 1400X850µm2.
