Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Abstract

We demonstrate a silicon PIC mode multiplexer using grating couplers. An aluminum mirror is introduced for coupling efficiency improvement. A highest coupling efficiency of –10.6 dB with 3.7 dB mode dependent coupling loss is achieved.
