Paper Abstract

A novel method is applied to the facet reflectivity of a two dimensional waveguides not deeply buried into the cladding. The reflectivity of an angled two dimensional waveguide, with and without antireflection coatings is studied. It is shown that waveguides with AR coatings are more prone to the presence of the semiconductor-air boundary in which case the buried depth has to be taken into account.
