    The nonlinear properties of a distributed feedback grating in a waveguide characterized by a diffusive thermal nonlinearity were investigated experimentally. Reflection and transmission were measured in an InSb planar structure, and all-optical tuning of the reflectivity was achieved either by a...

    A measurement of the insertion loss and crosstalk in folded, 100 GHz, arrayed waveguide multiplexers as a function of the number of grating waveguides is described. The number of grating waveguides can be varied in a single device to evaluate power truncation effects with high accuracy. We show...

    Grazing-angle scattering (GAS) is a type of Bragg scattering in slanted wide periodic gratings. It occurs when the diffracted order satisfying the Bragg condition (scattered wave) propagates at a grazing angle to the grating boundaries. Previous research has been concerned only with first-order...

    A novel method for studying the dependence of scattering loss on guide structure in integrated-optic semiconductor rib waveguides is presented. The results provide a simple experimental test for determining the nature of the scattering loss. Differences in scattering due to changes in epilayer...
