Abstract

We report a successful experimental realization of a 2 × 2 suspended silica splitter integrated on a silicon substrate. The silica splitter was photo-lithographically patterned, etched, and reflowed to form the suspended and rounded silica waveguide channels. The silica splitter showed a flat splitting ratio and excess loss over a wide wavelength range from 1520 to 1630 nm with a low crosstalk. Additionally, as a result of the very low nonlinear coefficients of silica, the splitting ratio is independent of input power.
