Abstract

A path-reversed substrate-guided-wave holographic interconnection scheme is investigated for a wavelength-division demultiplexing application. Using a beveled edge of a waveguiding plate allows optical signals to be coupled into the waveguiding plate and then to be coupled out of the plate by a waveguide hologram. Theoretical analyses are given for dispersion, bandwidth, and recording parameters of various guided-wave holographic gratings. A device is fabricated with a 45° incident angle and a 45° diffraction angle by use of a 20-µm photopolymer film. The 3-dB bandwidth of the device is measured to be 20 nm. Four-channel wavelength demultiplexing is demonstrated at 796, 798, 800, and 802 nm with no cross talk observed. A one-to-five cascaded four-channel wavelength-division demultiplexer with ±5% energy uniformity under s polarization is also demonstrated to increase the user-sharing capacity. Twenty fan-out channels (5 × 4) are achieved experimentally.
