Paper Abstract

Problem of efficient light coupling into planar waveguide structures was always a stumbling block for the designers of integrated optical circuits. In this article methods of light coupling into the planar waveguides are described. Comparison of two main approaches -- prism and grating coupling -- is given. Examples of grating coupler technology are presented also.
