Paper Abstract

The "HiPhoCs" program, a cluster of projects supported by the German Ministry of Education and Research, is focused on the proof of applicability of planar photonic crystals based on slab waveguides within telecom transmission lines and optical networks. Results of the "HiPhoCs" program on modeling and etching aiming at the optimization of device oriented structures in the III-V and SOI material systems are reported as well as their application to key components such as PhC-based WDM-filters, dispersion compensators, integrated lasers and their coupling to the optical fiber infrastructure.
