Abstract

A boundary variation method for the fast and accurate modeling of three-dimensional waveguide grating couplers is presented. The algorithm is verified by detailed comparisons with the results of a rigorous spectral collocation method, showing excellent agreement. Examples of the modeling of large waveguide grating couplers are given to illustrate the applicability and versatility of the method.
