Phase trimming of Mach-Zehnder Interferometers by laser annealing of germanium implanted waveguides
We demonstrate a new post-fabrication trimming technique to fine-tune the phase of integrated Mach-Zehnder Interferometers (MZIs), enabling permanent correction of typical fabrication based phase errors. Preliminary results demonstrate a phase trimming accuracy of 0.146π.

Abstract

We demonstrate a new post-fabrication trimming technique to fine-tune the phase of integrated Mach-Zehnder Interferometers (MZIs), enabling permanent correction of typical fabrication based phase errors. Preliminary results demonstrate a phase trimming accuracy of 0.146π.
