Paper Abstract

Normally, the larger refractive index contrast of silicon-on-insulator (SOI) photonics used for transporting highly confined optical modes is not available in compound semiconductor systems because the optically active layer rests upon an epitaxial support layer having a similar refractive index. Here, a semiconductor-under-insulator (SUI) technology for compound semiconductor membrane photonic circuitry is presented. It will be shown that such a technology can facilitate the transport of highly confined optical modes in compound semiconductor systems and is anticipated to be a critical part of future scalable quantum photonics applications.
