Abstract

The coupling between a dielectric waveguide and a photonic crystal waveguide is studied theoretically and experimentally. The coupling methods studied in this work include graded photonic crystal coupler, photonic crystal taper, waveguide taper, and parabolic mirror coupler. The properties of each coupler are discussed and compared.
