Paper Abstract

We present a design methodology for silicon-on-insulator photonic crystal waveguides to achieve wideband lowdispersion slow light with only tuning the position of the first three inner rows. We aim to maximize the group index - bandwidth product or the slowdown factor. Our design achieves a constant group index of 39.3 over 12 nm bandwidth around 1550 nm, corresponding to a slow down factor of 0.3.
