Abstract
Optical technology is poised to revolutionize short-reach communication systems, and the leading technology is silicon photonics. Silicon photonic devices have attracted more and more attention and have been increasingly studied in recent years. Grating, which functions as a building block for many passive and active devices, is widely used in silicon photonics. This review presents some silicon photonic devices based on binary blazed gratings, such as grating couplers, beam splitters, polarization beam splitters, broadband reflectors, and narrow filters, that demonstrate much better performance than those based on uniform gratings, owing to the novel characteristics of binary blazed gratings.
