Abstract

We discuss different mechanisms for coupling light from nanophotonic silicon waveguides to
different types of materials added on top of these waveguides for enhancing the functionality of
these waveguides. We consider diffractive coupling, evanescent coupling, adiabatic coupling
and coupling to an overlay and illustrate these with recent experimental and modelling results.
