A compact configuration for a coarse wavelength-division multiplexer (CWDM) and a coarse wavelength-division demultiplexer (CWDDM) that are based on reflection volume phase gratings is formed. The design and calculated results for four-channel CWDM and CWDDM configurations in the region near 800 nm are presented. Theoretical predictions are experimentally verified with a four-channel CWDDM whose channels are centered at 775, 800, 825, and 850 nm.
