Strategies for non-volatile alteration of optical components based on mid index waveguides

Frederic Gardes

Southampton University, United Kingdom

We demonstrate a range of technique and materials enabling non-volatile alteration of optical components based on mid index waveguides for O and C band applications, fabricated using a CMOS compatible silicon nitride material using different silicon content.

Reconfigurable Optical Switches using phase-changing materials

Winnie N. Ye

Carleton University, Canada

We present the optical switches using phase changing cladding material. Two configurations of the optical switches will be investigated: one with serially-coupled microdisks and one with 2 x 2 Mach-Zehnder with dual suspended nanobeams. In this research, phase change material GSST is used to provide the stable cross and bar states corresponding to the amorphous and crystalline phases of the GSST, respectively. The unique integration of the switch design elements enables the nonvolatile resonant behavior, low switching power, low insertion loss and crosstalk, wide bandwidth, and fast switching times, for WDM switching applications. This work suggests an alternative switch configuration, in addition to the conventional thermo-optic and electro-optic switching in silicon photonics.
