On-chip, planar integration of Er-doped Silicon-rich silicon nitride microdisks with SU-8 waveguide and polymer cladding is achieved. The lack of high temperature or etching processes allows back-end integration without any optical damage to the microcavity resonator. The maximum measured Q-factor at 1475.5 nm was 13,000, corresponding to calculated(More)
Thin-film color reflectors inspired by Morpho butterflies are fabricated. Using a combination of directional deposition, silica microspheres with a wide size distribution, and a PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane) encasing, a large, flexible reflector is created that actually provides better angle-independent color characteristics than Morpho butterflies and which(More)
Single-phase, polycrystalline Er(x)Y(2-x)SiO(5) thin films were deposited by reactive ion-beam sputter deposition and rapid thermal annealing. Due to the crystalline nature, the silicate thin films provide peak Er(3+) emission cross-section of 0.9 +/- 0.02 x 10(-20) cm(2) that is higher than that in silica. Optical gain, with near 60% inversion, is achieved(More)
We demonstrate label-free optical biosensing using a horizontal air-slotted silicon-rich silicon nitride (SiNx) microdisk resonator. Due to the strong confinement of light in the air-slot, a large resonance shift of 6.2 nm is observed upon reaction of the biotin-functionalized disk with a streptavidin solution with concentration of 2.5 μg/ml. Assuming a(More)
By confining light in a small cavity, the spontaneous emission rate of an emitter can be controlled via the Purcell effect. However, while Purcell factors as large as ∼10,000 have been predicted, actual reported values were in the range of about 10-30 only, leaving a huge gap between theory and experiment. Here we report on enhanced 1.54-μm emission from(More)
Through simulations and measurements, we show that in multi-slot thin film waveguides, the TM polarized modes can be confined mostly in the low refractive index layers of the waveguide. The structure consisted of alternating layers of a-Si and SiO(2), in the thickness range between 3 and 40 nm, for which the slots were the SiO(2) layers. Simulations were(More)
We design and fabricate pedestal-type, 15 microm diameter silicon nitride microdisk resonators on Si chip with horizontal air-slot using selective wet etching between Si, SiO2, and SiNx. As the slot structure is determined by deposition process, air slots that are as thin as 40 nm and as deep as 5 microm with ultra-smooth slot surfaces can easily be(More)
Junction structures provide the foundation of digital electronics and spintronics today. An equivalent, a photonic junction to achieve systematic and drastic control of photon flow is currently missing, but is mandatory for serious all-optical signal processing. Here we propose a photonic junction built upon mode-orthogonal hetero-structures, as a(More)
We present a simple but effective method to measure the pressure inside a deformable microchannel using laser scattering in a translucent Scotch tape. Our idea exploits the fact that the speckle pattern generated by a turbid layer is sensitive to the changes in the optical wavefront of an impinging beam. A change in the internal pressure of a channel(More)
Plasmonic air-gap disk resonators with 3.5 μm diameter and a 4 nm thick, 40 nm wide air gap for a mode area of only λ0(2)/15,000 were fabricated using photolithography only. The resonant modes were clearly identified using tapered fiber coupling method at the resonant wavelengths of 1280-1620 nm. We also demonstrate the advantage of the air-gap structure by(More)
