The Kaiam Athermal AWG (Arrayed Waveguide Grating) is a high-performance DWDM mux/demux device operating on 100GHz channel spacing without the need for temperature stabilization. The planar processed silica-on-silicon chips comprise arrayed channel waveguides to separate or combine multiple wavelengths.
Athermal AWGs allow multiplexing and demultiplexing of DWDM signals over a wide operating temperature range, without the need for heater drive and monitoring electronics. These AWGs offer low insertion loss, excellent channel isolation, ease of fiber handling, and long-term reliability in a compact package. Kaiam’s athermalization technology simplifies deployment of AWG multiplexers/demultiplexers by DWDM network providers.
