Paper Abstract

Integrated optical waveguides, as well as splitters and switches utilizing the principle of multimode interference have been realized in PECVD SiON/SiO2 technology. The waveguide design has been optimized to meet a number of requirements, such as small device size, polarization- independent operation, and low-power active operation. The design, fabrication, and initial experimental results for these devices are discussed.
