A new principle for flattening AWG responses is demonstrated. The approach works in reflection, where the spectrum of the reflected light shows a box like shape, with only a small passband ripple. The method is in principle lossless. The main part of the device is formed by a general multimode intetference reflectoc This MIR works as a retro reflector that not only preserves the field shape, but also the position of the field. A pure propagation direction reversal is obtained in this wa~y The theory behind the principle is explained, and we present simulation results and initial measurement results.
