Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Bragg-grating-based optical add/drop multiplexers (OADM) are designed and produced, that are compatible with the advanced planar polymer waveguide technology. Gratings with 99.997% reflection efficiencies were produced, apodization was use to eliminate sidelobes, and symmetry was ensured to avoid coupling to cladding modes. Thermal solid-state tuning over a range of 20 nm was achieved with a single device.
