Mid-infrared microphotonics using air-clad silicon pedestal structures Conference Paper uri icon


  • Towards Mid-Infrared silicon microphotonic circuits, we demonstrate broadband on-chip silicon structures including straight, bent waveguides, and beam splitters, utilizing a novel air-clad pedestal configuration. Transmission loss of 2.7 dB/cm is obtained at λ=3.7 um. © 2013 The Optical Society.
