A study of the modal reflection, transmission and radiation properties of deeply etched second-order Bragg waveguide gratings in silicon-on-insulator (SOI) slab waveguide is presented. Both the eigenmode expansion method and the finite-difference time-domain method have been used to model this structure. High reflection can be obtained with a very short grating structure. The out-of-plane coupling efficiency and directionality can be controlled by the grating depth and groove shape. This structure has potential for use in micro-cavity laser, compact outcouplers and incouplers, and surface-emitting lasers. We propose an application example which involves a double-grating coupler to realize efficient coupling between vertically integrated SOI waveguides over short distances. Experimental results will be presented.
