Product Description

Passive AWG module is an optical device used for Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) applications in optical fiber communication systems. AWG stands for Arrayed Waveguide Grating, which is a spectroscopic device based on waveguide technology.

Passive AWG modules are optical devices that require no external power supply or electronic control, hence the name “passive”. It consists of a series of micron-scale waveguides that couple and interfere with each other through a grating structure to achieve splitting and multiplexing of optical signals.

The main function of the Passive AWG module is to split the input optical signal into multiple optical signals of different wavelengths (channels) and direct them to the output port. It can process optical signals of multiple wavelengths at the same time, realize wavelength division multiplexing, and transmit signals of different wavelengths in optical fibers, thereby increasing optical fiber bandwidth and capacity.
