Abstract

We demonstrate propagation losses of less than 0.8 dB μ m in a metal slot waveguide on silicon with a predicted confinement substantially below the optical wavelength ( 1.55 μ m ) . We also show compact and efficient coupling of the high-confinement metal slot waveguide with a standard silicon dielectric waveguide with a coupling efficiency of approximately 2.5 dB per facet.
