Arrayed Waveguide Grating, 100 GHz, Narrowband (Gaussian)

Arrayed Waveguide Grating, 100 GHz, Narrowband (Gaussian)

JDSU 100 GHz, narrowband arrayed waveguide gratings (AWGs) provide a price-competitive, small-form-factor alternative to standard thin film-based dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM).

JDSU AWGs are a product of advanced PLC fabrication capabilities, and are offered in both mux and demux configurations. The low cost and high performance make them the ideal solution for metro and long-haul DWDM applications.

JDSU AWGs can incorporate microcontroller-based internal temperature control (ITC) circuitry to allow stable alignment with the ITU grid. The optional ITC eliminates the need for external temperature control, and does not impact package dimensions.
