Abstract

A one-dimensional fiber grating coupler is derived from a waveguide with random etches using implementations of particle swarm and genetic algorithms. The resulting gratings yield a theoretical coupling efficiency of up to 1.1 dB and prompt clear design rules for the layout of highly efficient fiber grating couplers.
