Integration of chalcogenide and titanium-diffused lithium-niobate waveguides Conference Paper uri icon


  • The integration of a higher index chalcogenide strip as a guiding layer on top of diffused lithium niobate waveguides is presented. The mode transfer to upper cladding through a 2D taper structure is discussed theoretically. A review of the fabricated waveguide structures and the results are also provided. A slight modification to current taper design is proposed to further improve the bend radius and create much smaller ring resonators. Future perspectives for devices and their potential impacts on integrated optics are also discussed. 2010 Copyright SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering.
