In this paper a new design for a 16×1 arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) with a flat spectral response is presented which is suitable for wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks. We designed a 16 channel silicon-based device with center wavelength of 1550 nm and 1.6 nm channel spacing. In our new design the insertion loss for the side channels decreases drastically up to 6 dB. Also, the maximum insertion loss difference between channels decreases from 8 to 2 dB and the spectral response of the device is flattened.
Keywords: arrayed waveguide grating, flat spectral response, insertion loss, wavelength division multiplexing
