A method of designing aberration-corrected concave gratings and their mounting for optical demultiplexers is described. An aberration-corrected concave grating for a demultiplexer has been designed and fabricated for use in a six-channel multiplex system in the 800-nm wavelength region. A coupling efficiency of 55% and signal cross talk of less than ~3 × 10−4 have been achieved experimentally.
