Paper Abstract

This paper describes the maturation of silicon on insulator technology in integrated optics. Results are presented of optical elements, showing their viability in such fields as telecommunications. Low cost packaging schemes are presented, allowing passive alignment of optical fibers in etched V grooves to the single mode ridge waveguides with an excess loss < 0.5 dB. We then discuss device applications for this technology.
