Paper Abstract

In this work, potential ways of accessing a greater spectral range at mid-infrared (MIR) wavelength ranges in silicon photonics are explored, in particular for sensing applications that use on-chip spectroscopy. To utilise the full low-loss transmission of silicon, silicon membranes are transfer printed onto MIR-transparent substrates for waveguides with no absorption from the substrate. A Y-junction splitter with low loss across a 1 µm optical bandwidth is also designed and experimentally demonstrated.
