Paper Abstract

A systematic design process of slow light photonic crystal slab waveguides is presented with the aim of maximizing the storage capacity. Dispersion effects and propagation losses characteristics are included in order to increase the design accuracy. Our procedure allows the optimization of the structure at the same time by varying as many as ten design parameters. We show that storage capacities of almost 32bits at 40Gb/s and 65bits at 100Gb/s can be obtained.
