Optimization of Diffraction Efficiency and Polarization Dependence Loss in Photopolymer Grating for Use in Multichip Module
We in this paper propose a model to increase the diffraction efficiency of a holographic grating at 1550 nm for multiplexing application. To use such a grating, polarization dependence loss is introduced analytically and then optimized for its minimum value A configuration of holographic grating is proposed based on both maximum diffraction efficiency and minimum polarization dependence loss. The proposed grating is expected to find importance in optoelectronic multichip module.
