13 September 1995 Simulation and fabrication of ARROW directional couplers
Author Affiliations +
Directional couplers based on antiresonant reflecting optical waveguides (ARROW) have been fabricated and tested. The exchange of power from one waveguide to the other could be well controlled by adjustment of geometrical parameters such as the coupling length and/or the etch depth of the rib ARROW waveguide. Simulations based on the beam propagation method yield good agreement with measurement data and has been found to be indispensable for accurate design and analysis of ARROW directional couplers. Owing to the ARROW structure, the directional couplers presented have the feature that they also perform the polarizing function.
