Abstract
An athermal arrayed-waveguide grating (AWG) multiplexer relying on an all-polymer approach is reported. By properly adjusting the positive coefficient of thermal expansion of the polymer substrate and the negative thermo-optic coefficient of the polymer waveguide, athermal and polarisation-in-dependent AWG devices are demonstrated.
