In the present paper, we have investigated the basic forms of the matrices of the thermal and spectral variations of the refractive-index (RI) for three different fabrication materials such as lithium niobate, polymethyl metha acrylate (PMMA) and silica-doped that are based arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) device depends on curve fitting program. Then, we are able to study the transmission spectrum characteristics of arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) device in the mathematical matrix form through the wavelength and temperature ranges.
