ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1364/OL.34.003142||Abstract:||We have studied the effect of oxidation on the propagation loss and surface roughness of silicon-on-oxidizedporous-silicon strip waveguides fabricated using proton-beam irradiation and electrochemical etching. A thin thermal oxide is formed around the core of the waveguide, enabling the symmetric reduction of core size and roughness on all sides. Significant loss reduction from about 10 dB/cm to 1 dB/cm has been obtained in TE and TM polarizations after oxidation smoothening of both the bottom and the sidewalls by 20 nm. This corresponds well with simulations using the beam-propagation method that show significant contributions from both surfaces. © 2009 Optical Society of America.||Source Title:||Optics Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/96372||ISSN:||01469592||DOI:||10.1364/OL.34.003142|
