Abstract

We design tapered waveguide junctions for coupling between photonic crystal and traditional dielectric waveguides and evaluate their transmission efficiency. While the transmission efficiency is less than 60% using no taper,the tapered couplers have over 90% power transmission. We show that different types of couplers are needed for efficient coupling into and out of photonic crystal waveguides.
