New focusing and dispersive planar component based on an optical phased array
A novel focusing and dispersive component is presented which is based on a phased array of bent optical waveguides. It combines good optical properties with small dimensions and can be realised with (high-quality) optical lithography. Applications are (de)multiplexers, wavelength filters and polarisation splitters.
