We demonstrate the integration of arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) de-multiplexer with a low loss and low index contrast platform, i.e., a striped-loaded slot waveguide (SLWG). The SLSW-AWG is designed to operate around the wavelength λ = 1550 nm with a four-output channel. The device experiences excellent output parameters: channel width δλ = 1.39 nm at -3dB, channel spacing Δλ = 2.43 nm and extinction ratio ER = 9.87 dB, useful for sensing applications.
