Characterization of High-K Double Slot Grating Couplers for on-chip Interconnects
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this project, optical waveguides are analyzed with the intention of explain the principles of confine and guide light by using materials with a specific refractive index. The waveguide fabrication process in a silicon wafer is review as for the different type of devices or waveguides. Optical measurements within a double slot grating couplers are performed achieving a waveguide loss of 0.01dBm/μm and a total efficiency of 25.5% per grating coupler. And an attempt to explain the different phenomena that causes a detrimental effect in the results as cleanliness conditions, equipment or the Gaussian beam effect is done.
