We discuss different mechanisms for coupling light from nanophotonic silicon waveguides to different types of materials added on top of these waveguides for enhancing the functionality of these waveguides. We consider diffractive coupling, evanescent coupling, adiabatic coupling and coupling to an overlay and illustrate these with recent experimental and modelling results.
