Abstract

We propose a new type of arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) device that operates as a Fourier-transform (FT) spectrometer without the need of scanning elements. The large input aperture size typical of a FT spectrometer eliminates the requirement for a narrow single-mode input waveguide while still achieving high spectral resolution with a markedly increased light-gathering capability (étendue). An example of the device with a resolution of 0.07 nm (∼10 GHz) and designed for a silicon-on-insulator platform is presented. The calculated spectra show no noticeable deterioration for aperture widths as large as 40 µm, yielding more than a 50-fold increase in aperture size compared with conventional AWG or echelle grating based devices at the equivalent resolution.
