Paper Abstract

Photonic crystals have seen major advances in the past few years in the optical range. The association of in-plane waveguiding and two-dimensional (2D) photonic crystals (PCs) in thin-slab or waveguide structures leads to good 3D confinement with easy fabrication. Such structures, much easier to fabricate than 3D PCs, open many exciting opportunities in optoelectronic devices and integrated optics. We review the basics of these structures, with emphasis on basic properties and loss performance, 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 (PICs). A companion paper by Benisty et al. in these proceedings illustrates further high performance building blocks and integrated devices.
