Paper Abstract

Integration of photonic crystals on standard SOI wafers used in microelectronics seems very attractive due to the large demand for optical and opto-electronic components in telecommunications. The 200nm thick silicon superficial layer which can be an interesting monomode waveguide for the wavelengths of interest presents important draw-backs and characterization of elementary blocks is not easy as reliable coupling of light in such thin films is still a challenge. We propose here a demonstrator made of an elementary photonic crystal and its associated grating couplers introduced for characterization purposes carried out in single step lithography process. Dimensions have been defined in order to realize an omnidirectional mirror in the 1.3-1.5micrometers range.
