Paper Abstract

Tilted Bragg gratings (TBGs) have been shown to have a number of practical uses in planar geometries, demonstrating polarization capabilities and allowing excitation of surface plasmons. Fabrication and characterization of TBGs has been carried out in silica-on-silicon waveguides to highlight potential planar applications. An initial investigation into the coupling behaviour of TBGs has been undertaken, with greater than -20 dB coupling achieved for even small angle gratings (5 °). Experimental analysis of these TBG systems provides insight into future applications of the planarized devices.
