- Fabrication of Silicon Photonics Devices
ByFrancisco López Royo
Pages 68

This chapter has been written on the assumption that the reader is approaching the subject of silicon photonics with a basic background in science or engineering, perhaps even some specic knowledge in the eld of photonics, but not necessarily any previous knowledge of microfabrication. It attempts to complement the rest of the book by presenting a basic foundation on micro-nanofabrication technology, materials, and processes, and a discussion of the most challenging aspects involved. Most other chapters focus instead on specic photonic devices, although they may also briey discuss some aspects of their fabrication.
