Investigating the potential of laser-written one-dimensional photonic crystals inside silicon
The field of silicon photonics is based on introducing and exploiting advanced optical functionality. Current efforts in the field are based on conventional micro/nanofabrication methods, leading to optical functionality over wafer surfaces. A complementary and emerging field is introducing analogous optics directly within the wafer using lasers. Here we investigate the theoretical feasibility of a subclass of such optics, photonic crystals. Our efforts will guide future experimental efforts towards in-chip spectral control.
