Abstract

Code division multiplexing (CDM) [1]-[3] is the key technology to realize more flexible and dense photonic networks. The variety of codes are very useful for assignment of optical paths, namely, spectral code paths. Efficient spectral encoder and decoder are necessary for such an application. Diffraction grating pairs[l],[2] have been used for encoding and decoding of optical pulses. However, diffraction grating systems do not have sufficient spectral resolution and it is difficult to attach multiple inputloutput ports. This paper proposes a novel photonic spectral encoder and decoder pair that uses high-resolution arrayed-waveguide gratings (AWGs); their performance is confirmed in a transmission experiment.
