Abstract:

Advances in fabrication technology have made it possible to prodce features that are smaller than the wavelength of light. As such a new class of optical devices based on submicron periodic structures has emerged and is referred to as photonic crystals (PhC) or photonic band gap devices (PBGs). Preliminary research indicates that these devices will be capable of performing a wide variety of functions. These include but are not limited to switching, splitting, modulation, and filtering. In this program, EM Photonics, Inc. and the University of Delaware intend to develop a unified manufacturing process for Photonic Band Gap devices that considers design, simulation, fabrication, and test.
