Coherently coupled bending waveguides based on antireso nant re ecting optical waveguide (ARROW) structures are investigated. The ARROW structure can provide low-loss single-mode propagation with a relatively large core size for ef cient connection to single-mode bers. The exi ble structural parameters of rib ARROW waveguides offer the possibility of optimization for various design consider ations. For the total bending angles of 27:2 a nd 91:2 , the simulated system transmission ef ciencies are 0:82 and 2:15 dB respectively. The corresponding device sizes are less than 10 mm2 .
