Abstract: PHOTONICS AND SENSORS BECOME THE NEW PROMISING BUILDING BLOCKS FOR REALIZATION OF ?MORE THAN MOORE? (MTM) MICRO/NANO-SYSTEMS AND OPTICAL PASSIVE DEVICES SUCH AS SENSORS WILL PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN EVERYDAY APPLICATIONS. OUR WORK INVOLVES THE DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF SILICON BASED PHOTONIC CRYSTAL WAVEGUIDE IN ORDER TO EXCITE THE SLOW LIGHT EFFECT. THE THESIS ALSO MOVED ON TO IMPLEMENT THE USE OF ALUMINUM NITRIDE (ALN) AS THE OPTICAL MATERIAL FOR GUIDED WAVE SENSOR. FOR FREE-SPACE BASED OPTICAL SENSORS, WE DESIGNED AND FABRICATED A TWO-DIMENSIONAL PHC REFLECTOR AND ALSO CHARACTERIZE THE PERFORMANCE OF THE PHC REFLECTOR AT HIGH TEMPERATURES. IN ORDER TO PASSIVELY CORRECT THERMO-OPTIC EFFECT, AN ALN BASED PHC REFLECTOR IS FABRICATED AND CHARACTERIZED. THE THESIS ALSO EXTENDED THE WORK ON PHC REFLECTOR TO REALIZE A PHC FABRY-PEROT FILTER WHICH HAS A Q-FACTOR AROUND AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE HIGHER THAN EXISTING WORKS.
