Effects of waveguide mode asymmetry on the laser diode-to-diffused waveguide coupling efficiency.


In the design and development of guided-wave optical cir­ cuits, it is important to be able to estimate the coupling effi­ ciency between the laser source and the optical waveguide. It was shown previously that the efficiency with which the out­ put of a double-heterostructure GaAlAs laser diode can be edge-coupled into a Ti indiffused LiNbO3 planar… (More)
