Paper Abstract

Two dimensional photonic crystal waveguides in high index materials enable integrated optical devices with an extremely small geometrical footprint on the scale of micrometers.1-3 Slotted waveguides are based on the guiding of light in low refractive index materials and a field enhancement in this particular region of the device. Here, we experimentally demonstrate electro-optic modulation in slotted photonic crystal waveguides based on silicon-on-insulator substrates covered and infiltrated with highly nonlinear guest host optical polymers.4 A photonic crystal heterostructure is used to create a cavity, while simultaneously serving as an electrical connection from the slot to the metal electrodes that carry the modulation signal.
