Compound cavity measurement of transmission and reflection of a tapered single-line photonic-crystal waveguide
2003 (English)In: Applied Physics Letters, ISSN 0003-6951, E-ISSN 1077-3118, Vol. 82, no 16, 2577-2579 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Measurements on a single-line defect photonic crystal waveguide demonstrate propagation losses as low as 140 cm(-1) and coupling efficiency to a ridge access guide increased from 20% to 50% thanks to a tapered access. These results are obtained by analyzing the internal cavities created by residual reflections, hence, requiring a single sample. They are nevertheless crosschecked by measurements on distinct samples by the Fabry-Perot resonance method.
