Paper Abstract

We have built and tested new multiple-layer silicon optical waveguide structures that have applications in wafer-scale optical interconnects. A repeated sequence of oxygen implantation annealing and Si epitaxy was used to make 5-layer or 6-layer structures containing a pair of 2- jim-thick Si waveguide cores separated by 1200A or 3700A of Si02. Coupled or uncoupled dual waveguiding at 1. 3 xm was observed. Inter-guide coupling for this stacked 3-D structure is analyzed here. Applications to all-silicon guided-wave optical interconnects are discussed.
