Paper Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate the structural tuning of the waveguiding modes of line defects in photonic crystal slabs. By tuning the defect widths, we realized efficient single-mode waveguides that operate within photonic band gap frequencies in SOI photonic crystal slabs. The observed waveguiding characteristics agree very well with 3D finite- difference time-domain calculations. The propagation loss of the line defect waveguides is experimentally determined to be 6 dB/mm. In addition, we measure group velocity dispersion of line defects by using Fabry-Perot resonance of the sample. Extremely large group dispersion is observed, and the traveling speed of light is reduced down to 1/100 of the light velocity in air.
