Paper Abstract

We demonstrate an efficient prism coupling method to couple nonplanar infrared waves into a 2-D planar photonic-crystal (PhC) device, such as a PhC waveguide (PhCW). A coupling efficiency of 31.1% is obtained experimentally. Results from finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) modeling are shown to closely match the results measured in a fabricated sample.
