Executive Summary

In the present paper, the authors have investigated parametrically and numerically the low loss a thermal Arrayed Waveguide Grating (AWG) which is composed of Lithium Niobate (LiNbO3)/polymer/silica-doped hybrid materials on a silicon substrate module for Passive and active optical network applications. The modeling has parametrically analyzed and investigated over wide range of the affecting parameters. Also, they have theoretically investigated the temperature dependent wavelength shift of the Arrayed Waveguide Grating (AWG) depends on the refractive-indices of the materials and the size of the waveguide. A thermalization of the AWG can be realized by selecting proper values of the material and structural parameters of the device.
