A Better Predictor for Waveguide Outcoupling by Surface Texturing or Roughness Conference Paper uri icon


  • Instead of RMS surface roughness, a better predictor for estimating waveguide outcoupling, or scattering loss, due to surface texturing or random surface roughness is RMS slope. Supporting simulations are shown for periodic and random surfaces.
