Alignment-insensitive coupling for PLC-based surface mount photonics

  title={Alignment-insensitive coupling for PLC-based surface mount photonics},
  author={D. Vernooy and J. Paslaski and H. Blauvelt and R. Lee and K. J. Vahala},
  journal={IEEE Photonics Technology Letters},
A flip-chip waveguide coupler with an order of magnitude greater alignment tolerance than competing approaches is presented for the first time. Experimental data for an "optical jumper" agree with simple design considerations. Application to a planar lightwave circuit-based surface mount photonics platform is outlined.
