Inverse electromagnetic design for silicon photonic components (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Andrew S. Michaels; Eli Yablonovitch

Paper Abstract

Silicon photonics is a rapidly maturing platform for optical communication and sensing. As systems leveraging silicon photonics have grown in size and complexity, so too has the demand for high performance silicon photonics components. In order to meet these demands, inverse electromagnetic design has gained attention as a general tool for optimizing sophisticate silicon photonic devices. In this talk, we demonstrate how inverse electromagnetic design methods can be systematically applied to design high performance devices which both satisfy practical fabrication constraints and which are insensitive to manufacturing variations. These results pave the way for high efficiency silicon photonic component libraries.
