Abstract

Several schemes for the monolithic integration of different optical devices have been developed. One of the proposed schemes involves an ultra-compact, highly efficient mode transformation between a highly confined active waveguide and a well-confined passive waveguide using conventional fabrication and single epitaxial growth. The mode is transformed over a taper 100 μm long and with a low round trip mode transformation loss of 0.3 dB. This scheme provides an attractive platform technology for monolithic integration of various active and passive devices such as splitters with amplifiers and Mach-Zehnder interferometers.
