Three-dimensional ultra-broadband integrated tapered mode multiplexers

Gross, Simon; Riesen, Nicholas; Love, John; Withford, Michael

Description

The demonstration of a three-dimensional tapered mode-selective coupler in a photonic chip is reported. This waveguide-based, ultra-broadband mode multiplexer was fabricated using the femtosecond laser direct-write technique in a boro-aluminosilicate glass chip. A three-core coupler has been shown to enable the multiplexing of the LP01, LP11a and LP11b spatial modes of a multimode waveguide, across an extremely wide bandwidth exceeding 400 nm, with low loss, high mode extinction ratios and...[Show more]

dc.description.abstractThe demonstration of a three-dimensional tapered mode-selective coupler in a photonic chip is reported. This waveguide-based, ultra-broadband mode multiplexer was fabricated using the femtosecond laser direct-write technique in a boro-aluminosilicate glass chip. A three-core coupler has been shown to enable the multiplexing of the LP01, LP11a and LP11b spatial modes of a multimode waveguide, across an extremely wide bandwidth exceeding 400 nm, with low loss, high mode extinction ratios and negligible mode crosstalk. Linear cascades of such devices on a single photonic chip have the potential to become a definitive technology in the realization of broadband mode-division multiplexing for increasing optical fiber capacity. A waveguide-based ultra-broadband mode-multiplexer, fabricated using the femtosecond laser direct-write technique, is presented. The three-core coupler is shown to enable the multiplexing of the LP01, LP11a and LP11b spatial modes of a multimode waveguide, across an extremely wide bandwidth exceeding 400 nm, with low loss, high mode-extinction ratios and negligible mode crosstalk.
