Paper Abstract

Parametric comparison of ultra-compact few-mode waveguides of three types (strip, rib, and buried) on thin-film Lithium Niobate On Insulator (LNOI) and SOI platforms is presented. Performance of waveguides is compared in terms of waveguide cross-sectional area, mode loss, dispersion, mode-hybridization and power confinement for both quasitransverse electric (qTE) and quasi-transverse magnetic (qTM) modes. It is found that LNOI waveguides exhibit lower dispersion with physical dimensions comparable to that of SOI waveguides. The results are vital in choosing an optimum configuration of few-mode waveguides which is crucial for designing few-mode devices in mode-multiplexing schemes.
