Paper Abstract

In this work, we report theoretical and experimental results on the use of Cadmium Telluride (CdTe) doped with Zinc (Zn) as core material for the development of all-optical photonic devices. We include the design of optical waveguides for strong field confinement, technological processes to grow CdTe on 6" or 8" wafers (suitable for high-volume manufacturing) as well as the fabrication and optical characterization of optical waveguides with a CdTe core.
