Chirped and apodized silicon gratings efficiently coupled to normally incident fiber array

Abstract

A silicon grating coupler containing non-monotonic chirp, apodization, and quasi-periodicity is fabricated, re-designed, and measured. Simultaneous input/output coupling from a standard fiber array at normal incidence results in a 60% coupling efficiency per grating.
