Paper Abstract

We investigate theoretically and experimentally photonic crystal waveguides and bends realized in glass-like amorphous materials. Efficient photonic crystal waveguide bends with transmissions up to 75% per bend and low loss photonic crystal waveguides with propagation losses as low as 1.7 dB/mm were fabricated and characterized.
