|Title:||Sol-gel fabrication for applications in photonic communications||Authors:||Ho, Charles Kin Fai.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Electrical and electronic engineering::Optics, optoelectronics, photonics||Issue Date:||2007||Source:||Ho, C. K. F. (2007). Sol-gel fabrication for applications in photonic communications. Doctoral thesis, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.||Abstract:||In an attempt to exploit low-cost fabrication methods for photonics components, the capability of film formation by the sol-gel (the alkoxide route) and spin coating process was rigorously studied and evaluated in this work. Two specific applications of interests are dielectric waveguide devices and III-V quantum-well intermixing (QWI) of optoelectronic devices. The sol-gel—spin coating technique was employed to synthesize a glassy layer of Ge02:Si02 that is suitable as a core layer of an optical waveguide and as a porous layer of Ge02:Si02 for encapsulant-induced QWI of semiconductor laser structures.||Description:||342 p.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/46870||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
