A fully-etched grating coupler with improved back re ection and bandwidth is demonstrated in this paper. It can also be made in compact patterns with much smaller footprints than conventional, fully-etched grating couplers with long adiabatic tapers. Sub-wavelength gratings were employed to form the e ective index areas between the major gratings. Our grating has a measured 3-dB bandwidth of 64.37 nm with a back re ection of -14 dB.
