Abstract

We present compact crossings for silicon-on-insulator photonic wires. The waveguides are broadened using a 3 μ m parabolic taper in each arm. By locally applying a lower index contrast using a double-etch technique, loss of confinement is reduced and 97.5 % transmission ( 1.7 dB ) is achieved with only 40 dB cross talk.
