Grating couplers are widely used to couple light between photonic integrated circuits and optical fibers. Here, we fabricate and characterize a device based on a buried metal grating. In contrast to dielectric gratings, simulations predict strongly reduced parasitic leakage of light to the substrate and are performance independent of the optical buffer thickness, while using standard fabrication processes with high yield. The gratings show a 3 dB bandwidth of 61 nm and chip-to-fiber coupling efficiency of 54%, which makes them attractive building blocks for on-wafer testing and dense optical interconnects.

A numerical investigation of the performance of an automatic gain-controlled semiconductor optical preamplified receiver for a 4 x 25 Gbits/s wavelength division multiplexing transmission system with a 0-40 km reach is presented. We show that the control scheme acting on the semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) gain increases the input power dynamic range of the optical receiver, thus allowing the transmission system to operate error free regardless of fiber length. In contrast, a fixed-gain optical receiver shows poor performance that is due to SOA nonlinearity and photodiode overload, which are well captured by the corresponding simulation models. The device represents a practical alternative to the next-generation high-speed Ethernet technology.
