dc.description.abstractWe have performed an exploration of inverted rib waveguide platform for use in optical backplanes. This entailed the design, optimization, and characterization of a variety of passive optical components that may serve as a basis for the functions required of an on-chip optical networks. The presented design introduces an inverted-rib template, which consists of a polymer waveguide layer. We have successfully fabricated and demonstrated low-loss waveguides, and also functional passive devices such as directional couplers, multimode interferometers, waveguide bends and crossings, and distributed Bragg reflectors. We also demonstrate a way of coupling active components (e.g., in silicon) to such a photonic integrated circuit.
