Abstract

A theoretical model based on Fourier optics and the power-coupling overlap integral is built to investigate the interchannel response in a micro-electro-mechanical systems 1×N2 wavelength-selective switch. The simulation results demonstrate that the interchannel response depends significantly on the output port location and the radius of curvature of the micromirrors. For the output originally aligned with the input along the dispersion direction, it is possible to achieve interchannel-response suppression by rotating the two-dimensional (2D) collimator array by a slight angle, e.g., 20°. Experimental results under different conditions are also shown.
