Paper Abstract

We present a simplified modal analysis of a Kerr-type grating coupler that rigorously takes into account the groove depth of the grating. These nonlinear grating couplers exhibit optical bistability. A comparison between the bistable loops obtained from this simplified method and a previously published rigorous method is performed.
