Abstract [en]

We have investigated the dispersion properties of photonic crystal waveguide resonators. A passive InGaAsP/InP slab waveguide structure was used for the fabrication of the samples. The PhC waveguide resonators were defined by the omission of several rows of holes along the ΓK or ΓM direction of a triangular photonic crystal lattice. In addition, mirrors with a thickness of 1 to 4 rows of holes were inserted into the waveguide. An optimized dry etch process was used to etch the patterns to a depth of 3.5 μm through the waveguide layer. The group delay of the PhC devices was measured using the phase shift technique. The signal of a tunable laser was modulated at 3 GHz using a LiNbO 3 Mach-Zehnder modulator and detected with a high-frequency lightwave receiver. A phase sensitive detection with a network analyer measured the phase shift of the transmitted signal, which is proportional to the group delay. Close to the center of the resonances, the chromatic dispersion reaches values of -250 ps/nm and 250 ps/nm. This corresponds to the chromatic dispersion of 15 km standard fiber.
