Abstract
The analysis of a silicon-based step-index waveguide with a corrugation grating at its surface is performed by considering the reflection between the silicon substrate and the optical buffer. The conditions on the silica buffer thickness for maximum in/out coupling into the substrate and into the air are given analytically, and a number of features of practical interest are described.
