Abstract
A rigorous numerical approach, based on the full vectorial finite element method, is used to design various types of monolithically integrated spot-size converters for efficient coupling to an industry-standard optical fiber. Spot-size converters with a tapered core, using uniform directional couplers and MMI structures are discussed and the predicted performance of the system reported.
