Abstract

We describe the design, fabrication and measurement of an integrated silicon photonics O-band/C-band duplexer. The duplexer is based on a directional coupler and is designed to be polarisation insensitive at 1550nm in order to be used in conjunction with a broadband integrated edge coupler. The measured insertion losses are <1.3dB with a -1dB bandwidth of ~80nm.
