Silicon-based photonic crystals and nanowires
2008 (English)In: Photonic Crystals: Physics and Technology / [ed] Sibilia, C.; Benson, T.M.; Marciniak, M.; Szoplik, T., Springer, 2008, 149-169 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This Chapter highlights issues related to dense photonic integration based on silicon platform and reviews two alternatives to achieve this goal within the diffraction limit; photonic nanowires and photonic crystal waveguides. Examples of the device concepts and demonstrators, as well as the fabrication techniques for passive Si based mesostructures, are presented. Promising prospects and recent breakthroughs in heterogeneous integration of silicon with optically active materials are indicated.
