Abstract

We report on compact focusing polarization diversity grating couplers in silicon-on-insulator, which can be used to overcome the polarization dependence of nanophotonic integrated circuits. The minimum fiber-to-fiber polarization dependent loss is 0.4 dB and the focusing grating couplers are as performant as standard 2-D-grating couplers without focusing. In addition, the focusing property of the gratings results in an 8-fold length reduction of the coupling structure as compared to standard nonfocusing 2-D-grating versions.
