Compact Optical Switches and Modulators Based on Dispersion Engineered Photonic Crystals

O'Faolain, Liam; Beggs, Daryl M.; White, Thomas; Kampfrath, Tobias; Kuipers, L. (Kobus); Krauss, Thomas F.

Description

We use slow-light photonic crystals to enhance optical switching and modulation in silicon. By using dispersion-engineered designs, a switch as short as 5 μm was achieved, in which we have demonstrated rerouting of optical pulses on a 3-ps time scale thr
