ZnO Based Integrated Photonics
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
"ZnO is an excellent candidate for the growing field of nanophotonics due to its index of refraction, availability of native substrates, and the possibility of light emission. These properties make ZnO an ideal candidate on this growing field. Phase Iwork will concentrate in designing and characterizing waveguides, which will be the interconnects of future ZnO based devices built homoepitaxially on ZnO or heteroepitaxially on silicon. The ability to produce a photonic integrated circuit will produce alarge cost reduction on optical telecommunications circuits as many fiber interconnects will be eliminated. In addition, a substantial reduction in optical device size will also be possible. Moreover, a new generation of photonic integrated systems willbe enabled."
