Tunable Bragg reflectors on silicon-on-insulator rib waveguides
OSA Optics Express, Vol. 17, Iss. 21, pp. 18518-18524, Sep 2009

We present the design, fabrication and characterization of Bragg reflectors on silicon-on-insulator rib waveguides. The fabrication is based on a new double lithographic process, combining electron-beam lithography for the grating and photolithography for the waveguides. This process allows the realization of low loss reflectors, which were fully characterized. The influence of the etching depth and of the waveguide geometry on the
reflector performance is considered. We demonstrate a reflectivity larger than 80% over a bandwidth of 0.8 nm with an insertion loss of only 0.5 dB. A thermal tunability of the device is also considered, showing that a shift of the reflected wavelength of 77 pm/K is possible.
