      Sánchez-Postigo, Alejandro; Ginel-Moreno, Pablo; Ortega-Moñux, Alejandro; Wanguemert-Perez, Juan Gonzalo; Halir, Robert; [et al.] (2021-09)
      The use of subwavelength grating structures in silicon waveguides have fuelled the development of integrated optical components with superior performance. By a judicious lithographic pattern of the grating, the optical ...
    • Designing polarization management devices by tilting subwavelength grating structures 

      Luque-González, José Manuel; Herrero-Bermello, Alaine; Ortega-Moñux, Alejandro; Molina-Fernandez, Iñigo; Velasco, Aitor V.; [et al.] (2019-05-03)
      Subwavelength gratings (SWG) are periodic structures which behave as controllable homogeneous metamaterials. SWGs are extremely interesting when they are used in platforms with a limited choice of material refractive indices, ...
    • Low-loss curved waveguide grating wavelength demultiplexer 

      Hadij ElHouati, Abdel; Ortega-Moñux, Alejandro; Wanguemert-Perez, Juan Gonzalo; Halir, Robert; Wang, Shurui; [et al.] (2021)
      We demonstrate a compact wavelength demultiplexer for the silicon on insulator platform based on the curved waveguide grating (CWG) architecture. We mitigate off-chip radiation loss by enforcing the single beam condition ...
    • Subwavelength-grating metamaterial integrated devices for the near- and mid-infrared wavelengths 

      Sánchez-Postigo, Alejandro; Wanguemert-Perez, Juan Gonzalo; Ortega-Moñux, Alejandro; Halir, Robert; Pereira-Martín, Daniel; [et al.] (2021)
      The subwavelength patterning of planar structures is now widely used in silicon photonics, enabling the synthesis of metamaterials with engineered optical properties, including refractive index, dispersion, and anisotropy. ...
    • Ultra-broadband Silicon Photonic Multimode Interference Coupler 

      Halir, Robert; Cheben, Pavel; Luque-González, Jose Manuel; Sarmiento-Merenguel, Jose Darío; Schmid, Jens; [et al.] (ECIO, 2017)
      In integrated optics, multimode interference couplers (MMIs) are used as light-wave splitters and combiners in a wide variety of devices ranging from spectrometers to sensors and coherent optical receivers. While their ...
