A leaky mode directional coupler was fabricated with its beam shaped into a Gaussian-like profile and was experimentally demonstrated for suppressing the diffraction of an out-coupled beam. The demonstrated coupler consists of a multilayered waveguide with six layers that are embedded in a symmetric slab waveguide. The out-coupled beam profile was measured to be shaped into a Gaussian function by using the prism coupling method. There was an excellent agreement between the measured and theoretically predicted coupling angles, and it was also confirmed that the diffraction was suppressed.
