Analysis and Fabrication of 45° Self-Aligned Integrated Mirrors on Dielectric Optical Waveguides
Integrated corner mirrors are of great interest in integrated optics since they can reduce the distance in which changes of propagation direction of light is done. A corner mirror consists of an etched vertical facet producing total internal reflection and abrupt change of the propagation direction.
