Abstract

An efficient wavelength demultiplexer with its input as a metal-insulator-metal (MIM) waveguide mode and output an out of plane free-space mode is proposed. The proposed demultiplexer design is integrated on a MIM waveguide such that power is evanescently coupled into an array of appropriately designed cavity-groove combination. The demultiplexer design permits control of phase of the dropped wavelength to achieve a desired wavefront. We demonstrate this through generation of circular and plane wavefront. By controlling the evanescently coupled power into the cavity-groove combinations, it is possible to dramatically improve the efficiency of the proposed demultiplexer. Results are simulated using FEM technique.
