We have designed and fabricated an efficient grating coupler for silicon-on-insulator waveguides. The coupler consists of 88nm wide slits, under an angle of 58° to the surface normal. They are defined by direct etching with a focused ion beam, using iodine gas and an alumina hard mask. The measured efficiency was 46%.
