Paper Abstract

We present a new approach to planar photonic interconnects based on spatial adiabatic passage between thin ridge silicon waveguides. Our approach provides robust coupling between arbitrary pairs of well-separated waveguides across a single chip, potentially bypassing intermediate waveguides and structures. This new technique presents opportunities for waveguide routing and device topologies that cannot be achieved using traditional evanescent coupling, while remaining compatible with conventional CMOS fabrication techniques.
