Abstract

We have demonstrated a proof-of-concept for an athermal silicon slot waveguide using Ormocomp as a top cladding. Preliminarily theoretical and experimental results show that the slot waveguide geometry can completely cancel out its thermo-optical coefficient, by tailoring the optical mode overlap with silicon, silicon dioxide, and Ormocomp.
