Abstract

Based on a photonic-crystal slab structure, a 60° photonic-crystal waveguide bend is successfully fabricated. Its bending efficiency within the photonic bandgap is measured, and near 100% efficiency is observed at certain frequencies near the valence band edge. The bending radius is ~1μm at a wavelength of λ~1.55μm . The measured η spectrum also agrees well with a finite-difference time-domain simulation.
