Plasma Etched Optical Corner Mirrors and Grating Demultiplexers in InGaAsP/InP.

1st edition 1997. IV, 200 pages, € 64,00.

ISBN 3-89649-176-8



This book deals with the realization and application of two examples of integrated optical reflectors in InP that rely on vertically plasma etched facets: corner mirrors and grating demultiplexers. Covering all relevant aspects, rules for an optimized design of corner mirrors are derived and the fabrication of corner mirrors with losses of 0.3 dB is presented. The realization of grating demultiplexers that are well suited for applications in wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) transmission systems is addressed. Encountered problems as polarization sensitivity, absolute passband wavelength control, resolution, aberrations, efficiency and packaging are considered. A comprehensive overview over the principles of plasma etching is given with particular emphasis on the influence of parameters in order to achieve smooth vertical facets.


Keywords: Plasma Etched Optical Corner Mirrors, Grating Demultiplexers, InGaAsP/InP, WDM
