Summary of "Uniformly spaced λ/4-shifted Bragg grating array with wafer-scale CMOS-compatible process."

We report on an integrated λ/4-shifted Bragg grating array using a wafer-scale complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) compatible process with silicon-nitride waveguides. A sidewall grating was used to simplify the fabrication process, and a sampled Bragg grating with equivalent phase-shift structure was employed to achieve an accurate λ/4 phase shift. A four-channel λ/4-shifted Bragg grating array with highly uniform channel spacing was demonstrated with a measured channel spacing variation below 10 pm (1.25 GHz). The high channel-spacing uniformity and the CMOS-compatibility of the demonstrated device hold promise for integrated distributed feedback laser arrays for various silicon photonic applications.

Analytical technique for studying substances present at enzyme concentrations in single cells, in situ, by measuring light absorption. Light from a tungsten strip lamp or xenon arc dispersed by a grating monochromator illuminates the optical system of a microscope. The absorbance of light is measured (in nanometers) by comparing the difference between the image of the sample and a reference image.
