    On-Chip Beam Splitting Strategies Based on SWG Assisted Directional Coupler for 850 nm Optical Coherence Tomography - A Numerical Study

    A subwavelength gratings (SWG) assisted directional coupler (DC) is proposed to work as beam splitter (BS) for 850 nm chip-based optical coherence tomography (OCT). The bandwidth of the SWG assisted DC is maximized to 110 nm by selecting appropriate SWG geometries including its duty cycle and period. The axial point spread functions (PSFs) derived from the BS transmittances proves the optimized bandwidth is broad enough to support axial resolution higher than 4 μ m . Meanwhile, the SWG period can be manipulated to match the center wavelength between BS and light source so that the wavelength mismatching induced resolution degradation is effectively ...
