Stress effects in prism coupling measurements of thin polymer films
Due to the increasingly important role of some polymers in optical waveguide technologies, precise measurement of their optical properties has become important. Typically, prism coupling to slab waveguides made of materials ...
Polarization characteristics of compact SOI rib waveguide racetrack resonators
We report on the development of compact optical racetrack resonators on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) rib waveguides. We make use of large-cross-section waveguides instead of photonic wire waveguides. We fabricated resonators ...
High-Q silicon-on-insulator optical rib waveguide racetrack resonators
(Optical Society of American (OSA), 2005)
In this work, detailed design and realization of high quality factor (Q) racetrack resonators based on silicon-on-insulator rib waveguides are presented. Aiming to achieve critical coupling, suitable waveguide geometry is ...
