Abstract

Compact devices for wavelength division multiplexing and demultiplexing, believed to be novel, are presented. These devices are based on planar optics configurations, comprising multiplexed diffractive optical elements. The principle, design, and recording of these planar devices are described, including the fact that the recording is done at a single wavelength in the green region. Experimental procedures and results for planar devices that can handle three wavelengths in the visible as well as in the near infrared are presented.
