Paper Abstract

The integration of a higher index chalcogenide strip as a guiding layer on top of diffused lithium niobate waveguides is presented. The mode transfer to upper cladding through a 2D taper structure is discussed theoretically. A review of the fabricated waveguide structures and the results are also provided. A slight modification to current taper design is proposed to further improve the bend radius and create much smaller ring resonators. Future perspectives for devices and their potential impacts on integrated optics are also discussed.
