Paper Abstract

A multitaper (MT) coupler is fabricated on a silicon chip for light coupling with high efficiency and resistance to fabrication errors. Other coupling techniques such as a single taper are less efficient and prone to fabrication errors. The dimensions of the MT can be optimized for a specific coupling geometry and can span sizes from several nanometers up to several microns.
