Compact Spectrometer based on a silicon multimode waveguide

Molly Piels, Darko Zibar

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    A multimode waveguide spectrometer with 4 GHz resolution, 250 GHz usable range, and a 1.6 mm × 2.1 mm footprint is demonstrated. The operating range is greatly extended by including distinct mode-exciting elements on chip.
