  • Publication number: 20210003782
    Abstract: An optical waveguide connection structure connects a Si waveguide and an optical fiber to each other with a bonding layer interposed therebetween. The Si waveguide has a core whose cross-sectional area in the direction perpendicular to the direction of propagation of light decreases toward the optical fiber, and a cladding that covers the core. The optical fiber has a fiber core, a fiber cladding that covers the fiber core, and a recess formed in an end face opposed to the Si waveguide. The bonding layer fills a gap between the end face of the Si waveguide and the end face of the optical fiber and the recess, and the bonding layer has a refractive index greater than the refractive index of the fiber core of the optical fiber.
