Abstract

The theory and experimental results of the performance of a practical prism waveguide input–output coupler are presented. The coupling scheme, which results in a 94% coupling efficiency, uses a single prism for both input and output coupling, with the light propagating 1 cm in the LiNbO3 Ti in diffused waveguide.
