Mitsubishi Electric developed the antenna with Hiroshima Institute of Technology, and received support from the Japan Science and Technology Agency's A-STEP program under a project entitled "Development of a novel resin ridge waveguide
antenna with eminent low sidelobe."
The waveguide width is 450 nm, the ridge waveguide
height is 220 nm, the planar waveguide height is 50 nm, the gap between waveguide and micro-ring is 200 nm, the micro-ring radius is 10 [micro]m, the doping concentration of P+ region is 1 x [10.sup.19] [cm.sup.-3], the doping concentration of N+ region is 1 x [10.sup.19] [cm.sup.-3], and the doping concentration of I region is 1 x [10.sup.15] [cm.sup.-3].

Usually it is assumed that no higher-order mode is excited when light propagates along a long bi-level taper, so that one achieves a low-loss smooth transition between the fundamental mode of the SOI ridge waveguide
and that of the silicon strip waveguide.
In [11,12], a single asymmetric ridge waveguide
is used for linear arrays to achieve close element spacing in the scan plane and avoid grating lobes.
Among these the most popular and well investigated are the loop transitions [1-3] and the stepped or linearly tapered ridge waveguide
