Paper Abstract

A rigorous numerical approach, based on the full vectorial finite element method, is used to design various types of monolithically integrated spot-size converters for efficient coupling to a standard optical fiber. Spot-size converters with a tapered core, using uniform directional couplers, and MMI structures are discussed and results of performance reported.
