Abstract

The use of guided-wave synthetic holograms in integrated optics is extended beyond the conventional Fresnel lens and Bragg grating technology. As an example, beam splitters based on Fourier-domain holograms are proposed as an alternative to the usual channel waveguide devices. We demonstrate fanout to six with ±5% (±0.2-dB) uniformity error using a binary phase grating and fanout to eight with ±20% (±0.8-dB) uniformity error using a multilevel grating.
