This thesis describes the fabrication and characterization of visible-range hollow Bragg waveguides. A wafer bonding method was first utilized to fabricate tapered hollow Bragg waveguides, which can function as the dispersive element of an integrated spectrometer. Etched channels coated with...
This thesis focuses on the development of integrated silicon-based nanoplasmonic waveguides and devices for use in all-optical plasmonic circuitry. To this end, metal-insulator-semiconductor-insulator-metal (MISIM) and metal-insulator-semiconductor (MIS) hybrid nanoplasmonic waveguides were...
This thesis presents the realization and characterization of passive and active photonic and nanoplasmonic waveguides for applications in all-optical circuitry. The key results focus on generating visible light in nanoscale silicon waveguides through nonlinear interactions and demonstrating...
