Abstract

We present 2D FDTD simulations of the coupling from a conventional optical waveguide to a photonic crystal waveguide and vice versa. Firstly, the optimum radius of the waveguide rods is determined for pillar photonic crystals surrounded by air and with a polymer layer stack. Secondly, the transmission of the waveguides with the coupling structures is simulated. The bandwidth obtained at 95% transmission is ' 20nm for the pillars in air, increasing to ' 50nm if the polymer layer stack is implemented.
