Paper Abstract

In this work planar planar (beta) -SiC-on-insulator waveguides were investigated. The waveguides were fabricated by two different methods. In the first a technological process similar to that of SIMOX was used, and therefore a buried SiO2 layer was formed by high energy ion implantation of oxygen in SiC/Si wafers. For the second type of waveguides we used heteroepitaxy of SiC on SOI(SIMOX). The losses have been measured at 0.633, 1.3 and 1.55 micrometer in both TE and TM polarization. A detailed analysis of the different loss mechanisms is presented. These types of waveguides have potential for high-speed silicon-based photonic devices compatible with silicon technology.
