Abstract

Si-based horizontal slot waveguides coupled to ring resonators have been fabricated and characterised. The central layer of the slot has been filled by Silicon nanocrystals (Si-nc) obtained by deposition of silicon rich silicon oxide and then thermal annealing. A comparison of various deposition and annealing parameters to form the Si-nc is performed. Propagation losses as low as 3 dB/cm and ring resonator quality factor of 30,000 have been achieved at 1550 nm.
