Abstract

This paper presents a design method of a taper structure for highly efficient coupling between 1-D photonic crystal coupled resonator optical waveguides (1-D PC-CROWs) and input straight waveguides. We propose a new taper structure where not only air hole radius but also waveguide width are varied linearly in order to adjust the dispersion curves shift. By using the proposed tapered structure, we can connect each waveguide with high transmission over wide bandwidth. Our numerical simulation results show that a transmission of 98% around 1550 nm wavelength in a 6.6 $\mu$m long taper can be obtained with a 42 nm bandwidth.
