A novel self-aligning SIOB (SIlicon Optical Bench) for fully passive alignment of optical components is proposed for integrated transceiver modules. The coupling efficiency from laser diode directly to fiber is about 8% in theory because of severe mode mismatch and large NA difference. To pursue high coupling efficiency, a ball lens is added between laser diode and fiber. The calculations and simulations are done to optimize the optical system according to optical component specifications. The coupling efficiency is up to 45%. We designed the layout and fabricated the SIOB in (100) silicon wafer to obtain the demanding cavities by MEMS technology.
