Abstract

We report a novel grating-assisted coupler that incorporates a photonic-band-gap structure. It is shown that by virtue of the resonant cavity formed by the structure and the grating the relative amounts of the output scattered and the transmitted guided-wave powers can be significantly modified. The potential applications for optical switches and wavelength demultiplexers based on this new configuration are discussed.
