Paper Abstract

In this paper, we review our work on efficient, broadband and polarization independent interfaces between a silicon-on-insulator photonic IC and a single-mode optical fiber based on grating structures. The high alignment tolerance and the fact that the optical fiber interface is out-of-plane provide opportunities for easy packaging and wafer-scale testing of the photonic IC. Next to fiber-chip interfaces we will discuss the use of silicon grating structures in III-V on silicon optoelectronic components such as integrated photodetectors and microlasers.
