Athermal silicon waveguides using the subwavelength grating effect
We present a method for designing temperature independent silicon waveguide devices using the subwavelength grating effect. Photonic wire waveguides are patterned with periodic gaps and filled with SU-8 polymer to cancel the silicon thermo-optic effect.
