Paper Abstract

Photonic crystals have seen major advances in the past few years in the optical range. The association of in-plane waveguiding and 2D photonic crystals in thin-slab or waveguide structures leads to overall good 3D confinement with easy fabrication. We present experiments on a variety of structures and devices, as well as modeling tools, which show that 2D PCs etched through waveguides supported by substrates are a viable route to high-performance PC-based photonic integrated circuits. In particular, they exhibit low out-of-plane radiation losses. Low-loss waveguides, high finesse micro cavities, and their mutual coupling are demonstrated.
