A new wavelength monitor based on a multimode interference waveguide is proposed for multiwavelength communication applications. The device characteristics are studied using the beam propagation method. By adjusting the waveguide’s geometric length, different wavelength ranges can be addressed. Each device can monitor up to a 50-nm range and has accuracy <5 Å. © 2003 Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers.
