We demonstrate a very simple and compact optical transceiver diode module using a passive alignment on a silicon bench with a V-groove. The excess loss caused by the passive alignment of an optical transceiver diode and a flat-end optical fiber is only 0. 6 dB. A high coupling efficiency of -4. 3 dB is obtained. This results in a high responsivity with a wavelength- and polarization-independence of 0. 5 dB over a 70 nm wavelength range and in good laser performance.
