Paper Abstract

The field of Silicon Photonics has gained a significant amount of momentum in recent years. Announcements of high speed modulators and cost-efficient light sources in the Silicon-on-insulator material system have helped to make Silicon Photonics a viable contender as a low-cost active photonic platform. As a pioneer in the field, the University of Surrey continues to investigate the prospects of silicon photonics. Herein we present a summary of our work on several key areas such as ion implanted grating devices, high-speed modulators, switches and ring resonators. We conclude with a discussion on an advanced fabrication technique, proton beam writing.
