Towards in-fiber silicon photonics
The nascent field of silicon core fibres is attracting increased interest as a means to exploit the optoelectronic functionality of the semiconductor material directly within the fibre geometry.

Abstract

The nascent field of silicon core fibres is attracting increased interest as a means to exploit the optoelectronic functionality of the semiconductor material directly within the fibre geometry. Compared to their planar counterparts, this new class of waveguide retains many of the advantageous properties of the fibre platforms such as flexibility, cylindrical symmetry, and long waveguide lengths. Furthermore, owing to the robust glass cladding it is also possible to employ standard post-processing procedures to tailor the waveguide dimensions [1] and/or modify the optoelectronic properties of the core material [2], far beyond what is achievable on-chip. In this paper I will review our efforts regarding the optical characterization of the silicon core fibres, with particular focus on their future prospects in high-speed all-fibre optoelectronic systems.
