Paper Abstract

We present the theory and experimental results of the performance of an integrated optics device that is composed of a prism-waveguide dual coupler. In the device, a circular and collimated beam of light is coupled into a LiNb03 Ti indiffused waveguide, with an efficiency of 94%, propagates 1 cm. in the waveguide, where electrodes can process the optical signal, and then the guided light is coupled out by the same prism with the same high efficiency. After presenting the theory, which is applicable to any type of waveguide, we show the experimental results that demonstrate the high efficiency throughput, and the high degree of collimation of the emerging beam.
