Paper Abstract

Using a grating coupler technique, we report on accurate determinations of bulk and mode refractive indexes in the 1.5 micrometers wavelength region. On the one hand, InP bulk refractive index is measured within a relative accuracy of 10-3 as a function of wavelength range, temperature, and for two doping levels. On the other hand, quantum effects are evidenced on index measurements using a GaInAs multiquantum well waveguide. As a result, it is shown that the guided mode birefringence is strongly enhanced as predicted from energy levels and selection rules of fundamental electronic transitions.
