Photonic crystal waveguides with propagation losses in the 1 dB/mm range
2004 (English)In: Journal of Vacuum Science & Technology B, ISSN 1071-1023, E-ISSN 1520-8567, Vol. 22, no 6, 3356-3358 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
High-quality photonic crystal waveguides have been fabricated in the InGaAsP/InP and GaAs/AlGaAs material systems aimed at the communication wavelengths of 1.55 and 1.31 mum. The waveguides consist of omitted rows of holes in a triangular lattice of air holes etched into the semiconductor heterostructures by electron cyclotron resonance reactive ion etching. Efficient waveguiding has been observed in optical transmission measurements, with waveguide losses ranging from 1.5 dB/mm for a waveguide with three missing row of holes (W3) to 0.2 dB/mm for seven missing rows (W7).
