Chip-level waveguide-mirror-pillar optical interconnect structure
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-07)
Waveguides, mirrors, and polymer pillars can be integrated together to provide optical interconnects to the chip level. Total internal reflection in the polymer pillar provides a high level of spatial confinement of the ...
Planar lightwave integrated circuits with embedded actives for board and substrate level optical signal distribution
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-05)
As the data rate of integrated circuits dramatically increases, interconnection speed at the backplane and board levels are beginning to limit system performance, which drives investigations into alternative interconnection ...
Optical and electrical interconnect partition length based on chip-to-chip bandwidth maximization
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-04)
The lengths beyond which board-level optical waveguides are capable of transferring a larger number of bits per second than electrical interconnects are found for various technology generations. As technology scales ...
Polylithic integration of electrical and optical interconnect technologies for gigascale fiber-to-the-chip communication
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-08)
Polylithic integration of electrical and optical interconnect technologies is presented as a solution for merging silicon CMOS and compound semiconductor optoelectronics. In contrast to monolithic and hybrid integration ...
Photopolymer-based diffractive and MMI waveguide couplers
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-11)
Sea of polymer pillars: Compliant wafer-level electrical-optical chip I/O interconnections
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2003-11)
An electrical–optical chip input–output (I/O) interconnection technology called sea of polymer pillars (SoPP) is presented. SoPP provides highly process-integrated and mechanically flexible (compliant) electrical–optical ...
Multimode metal-insulator-metal waveguides: Analysis and experimental characterization
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-02)
The analysis and experimental characterization of the propagation constants and attenuation coefficients of surface plasmon (SP) modes in planar multimode metal-insulator-metal (MIM) waveguides are presented. The experimental ...
Accurate cross-sectional stress profiling of optical fibers
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-09)
A novel technique for determining two-dimensional, cross-sectional stress distributions in optical fibers and fiber-based devices is presented. Use of the Brace-Kohler compensator technique and a polarization microscope ...
Induced-dipole-electric-field contribution of atomic chains and atomic planes to the refractive index and birefringence of nanoscale crystalline dielectrics
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-09)
The induced-dipole-electric-field contribution to the refractive index at any location within a nanometer-scale dielectric is quantified by summing the electronic dipole contributions due to all the surrounding atoms in ...
Two-wave-plate compensator method for single-point retardation measurements
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-12)
The two-wave-plate compensator (TWC) technique is introduced for single-point retardation measurements. The TWC method uses a known wave plate together with a wave plate of unknown retardation and produces a linearly ...
