3D Active photonic crystal devices for integrated photonics and silicon photonics.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Over the past 15 years, basic photonic crystals operating in optical wavelengths have been theoretically investigated and experimentally realized. New directions must now be set to understand fundamental photon-matter interactions and thus realize active photonic components for integrated and silicon-based photonic applications. This proposal aims at two key areas to study. They are: (1) Thermal emission and silicon photonic crystal lasers--an aspect of photon-phonon interaction. (2) Optical interconnects--an aspect of photonic transport and mutual interaction. Understanding the underlining photon-phonon interaction, blackbody radiation can be altered, and wasted thermal energy recycled. Furthermore, we intend to build SOI based optical components, and ... continued below

Over the past 15 years, basic photonic crystals operating in optical wavelengths have been theoretically investigated and experimentally realized.

This proposal aims at two key areas to study. They are: (1) Thermal emission and silicon photonic crystal lasers--an aspect of photon-phonon interaction. (2) Optical interconnects--an aspect of photonic transport and mutual interaction. Understanding the underlining photon-phonon interaction, blackbody radiation can be altered, and wasted thermal energy recycled. Furthermore, we intend to build SOI based optical components, and study their mutual interaction for achieving complex optical functionality. Two examples are waveguide-cavity and cavity-cavity interaction for channel dropping filter applications. Indeed, the next challenge in photonic crystal research is in material integration, in on-chip integration of photonic components, and lastly the realization of silicon lasers.
