A strongly coupled, chirped Bragg grating made by sinusoidally modulating the sidewalls of a silicon waveguide is designed, fabricated, and experimentally characterized. By varying the device parameters, the operating wavelength, device bandwidth, sign (normal or anomalous), and magnitude of group-velocity dispersion may be engineered for specific photonic applications. Asymmetric Blackman apodization is best suited for maximizing the useable bandwidth while providing good ripple suppression. Dispersion values up to are demonstrated at .
