Abstract

The ray-tracing method is applied to design a wavelength multiplexer–demultiplexer by the use of planar microlenses as focusing and collimating elements. By simulating both uniform and Gaussian intensity distributions of the input sources, we find the position of the input–output components of the wavelength multiplexer–demultiplexer, which maximizes the coupling efficiency in each channel. Losses are also evaluated.
