Slot waveguides for silicon photonics

By Publisher

Through a process of efficient dielectric to metallic waveguide mode conversion, we calculate a >400-fold field intensity enhancement in a silicon photonics compatible nanofocusing device. A metallic slot waveguide sits on top of the silicon slab waveguide with nanofocusing being achieved by tapering the slot width gradually. We evaluate the conversion between the numerous photonic modes of ... 19 Laurent Vivien Ring resonators Electrical signal Phase modulator V t Si SiO2 R Si waveguide I Transmission TON t Advantages/desadvantages ? A Complete Design Flow for Silicon Photonics | Waveguide Keywords: photonics, simulation, silicon photonics, photonic integrated circuits, electronic design automation (EDA), design flow, process designOne interesting aspect of photonic integrated circuit simulation is that the waveguides themselves must be seen as components of the circuit, rather than... Novel materials and optical waveguide systems for … Finally, a one-dimensional photonic crystal structure based on horizontal slot waveguide with a photonic band gap around 1.55 μm has also been designed and optically characterized. Finally, the last part of this thesis will be devoted to the characterization of Silicon on Insulators Multi-Resonators.
