Abstract (type = abstract)
Silicon photonics witnessed spectacular progress in the past decade. Optical interconnects, low cost telecommunications and optical sensors are three main application areas. Photonic crystal is composed of periodic scatterers. When the scatterers are of the proper size and the periodicity is on the order of wavelength, all the reflections and refractions will cancel, forming photonic band-gap forbidding light to penetrate into it. If we remove one line of the scatterers, the light will be confined in this "wire" tightly, forming a photonic crystal waveguide (PCW). To date, most of the PCW research has been focused on the even TE-like mode. However, a PCW often has an odd TE-like mode inside the photonic band gap exhibiting the slow-light effect as well. We demonstrated a novel scheme to control the excitation symmetry for a slow-light odd-mode in a PCW, and investigated the spectral signature. An odd-mode Mach-Zehnder coupler was introduced to excite a high-purity odd-mode with 20 dB signal-to-background contrast. Assisted by a mixed-mode Mach-Zehnder coupler, slow-light mode-beating can be observed, and determine the group index of this odd-mode. With slow-light enhancement, this odd-mode can help enable miniaturized devices based on transforming mode symmetry. The evolution of the transmission spectrum of a PCW under electro-optic tuning was studied in the band of an odd TE-like mode. The spectral signature of the interband scattering from the TM-like mode to the odd TE-like mode was characterized at various bias levels. The shift of the odd-mode band was determined. Simulations were performed to explain the spectral shift based on electro-optic and thermo-optic effects in the active photonic crystal structures. Potential impact of interband scattering on indirect interband-transition-based optical isolators is discussed and potential remedies are offered. Nanopatterning is one of the key steps in nano-fabrication. We applied the negative index material (NIM) to enhance the evanescent wave in the near-field region and excite surface plasmons. Superlens devices working at 193nm DUV wavelength were fabricated, imaged on the photoresist, and characterized by AFM. A series of Finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) simulations were performed to analyze the imaging mechanism of the superlens.
