Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Extremely small wavelength tunable optical add-drop multiplexers and 1 x N thermo-optic switches were demonstrated with high-A Si-wire waveguides. These micro-photonic devices with Si-wire waveguides are attractive for constructing photonic integrated circuits for use in future photonic network systems.
