Precision dicing of optical materials
Ductile regime dicing has been used to machine a variety of optical materials to produce waveguides for lasers, multi-mode interference devices and non-linear devices. However, few papers discuss the properties of the machining, either qualitatively or quantitatively. In this work ductile regime dicing of germanium, Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (YAG), lithium niobate and silicon for photonic applications are reported. Machining parameters are discussed, surface micrographs shown, and surface roughnesses are calculated for each sidewall machined. The sidewall average surface roughnesses (Sa) were measured to be 2.1 nm for germanium, 3.5 nm for YAG, 7.9 nm for lithium niobate and 8.6 nm for silicon.

Abstract

Ductile regime dicing has been used to machine a variety of optical materials to produce waveguides for lasers, multi-mode interference devices and non-linear devices. However, few papers discuss the properties of the machining, either qualitatively or quantitatively. In this work ductile regime dicing of germanium, Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (YAG), lithium niobate and silicon for photonic applications are reported. Machining parameters are discussed, surface micrographs shown, and surface roughnesses are calculated for each sidewall machined. The sidewall average surface roughnesses (Sa) were measured to be 2.1 nm for germanium, 3.5 nm for YAG, 7.9 nm for lithium niobate and 8.6 nm for silicon.
