Planar optical waveguiding structures for application in communication networks are highly demanding with respect to low insertion loss, efficient fiber-to-chip coupling, polarization independent operation, high integration density, reliable fabrication, and last but not least cost efficiency. When applying silicon oxynitride, which is a very versatile material, planar waveguiding structures can be designed having the potential of meeting all those requirements. In this paper, we will describe the design of such a waveguiding structure, demonstrate the practical feasibility of realizing this structure and discuss the preliminary measurement results.
