Easel 81: Fabrication of Silicon Nitride Waveguides for Photonic Integrated Circuits

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With the current integrated circuit technology nearing the end of its capacity to become smaller, and to consequently also become faster, the scientific community is hopeful that a new technology will arise. One candidate is for waveguides to replace the copper interconnects in integrated circuits. Our study involves the first steps for developing this technology. We focus on fabricating silicon nitride waveguides and testing them for transmission capabilities to demonstrate the potential for on-chip optical interconnects that are compatible with industry standard complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor transistor fabrication processes.
