Optical Nanowires for Microwave Applications
In this paper, we propose to take advantage of specific properties of nanophotonics to achieve microwave functions which are difficult to get with more conventional ways. With this goal, we developed new technologies to fabricate III-V nanowaveguides. Two ways were explored: the first one by deep etching of conventional epitaxies and the second one by embedding nanowires in polymer. We show in this paper some results on first devices mainly based on nanowires embedded in polymer.
