It is likely that the commercialisation of Photonic Crystal (PC) technology will require the high-volume capabilities provided by semiconductor nanofabrication processes. To this end, a Silicon-compatible PC waveguide could form the basic building block of an all-optical circuit. This presentation will discuss the development of PC research at Southampton University (UK) which began with deep photoelectrochemically etched holes in single-crystal Silicon. This initial work progressed to an all dielectric waveguide structure on a Silicon substrate, with the materials utilised being compatible with a CMOS process. PC nanofabrication and optical characterisation using these waveguiding structures will be described in detail.
