Abstract

A novel inorganic–organic hybrid silica–zirconia solgel material, which can generate 10   μm thick film in a single spin-coatingprocess, has been developed and employed in the fabrication of an embedded dielectric channel waveguide on a silica buffer layer of a silicon substrate. The fabricated channel waveguide core had steep ridge walls, good smoothness, and high robustness, and the novel sol synthesisenabled a precise control of the geometrical and optical parameters of the embedded dielectric channel waveguide. In the 1 .55   μm telecommunication window, the fundamental modes TE 00 and TM 00 in the embedded channel waveguide had low transmission losses of 0.40 ± 0.03 dB / cm and 0.59 ± 0.03 dB / cm , respectively.
