Paper Abstract

We review the design and fabrication considerations of the antiresonant reflecting optical waveguide (AR-ROW), including materials selection for IC and MEMS compatibility, and present a variety of IO devices and sensors based on the ARROW which we have developed, along with pertinent CAD tools. Examples presented include: directional couplers, thermo- optic modulators, and Mach-Zehnder interferometers (MZI), including micromachined MZIs for detection of mechanical signals.
