Abstract

In integrated photonics, compact redirection of light can be achieved by corner (turning) mirrors, providing a route to higher density optical components. Corner mirrors have been demonstrated in both silicon-on-insulator and hollow waveguides with reported losses of 0.9dB [1] and 0.8dB [2] respectively. We report a novel method of fabricating mirrors on a silica-on-silicon substrate. The method utilises the complementary techniques of physical micromachining and direct UV writing, both providing rapid prototyping outside the cleanroom environment.
