SPIE Optics + Photonics 2015

9-13 August 2015

Vinita Mittal gave a talk at the SPIE Optics + Photonics 2015 conference in San Diego, CA, USA.  The presentation was entitled 'Mid-infrared GeTe4 waveguides on silicon with a ZnSe isolation layer' and, judging by its reception, was of great interest to the community.  Vinita described one of the ways the WIPFAB team has achieved waveguiding using conventional wafer fabrication techniques on silicon whilst avoiding its limited transmission range.  This enables us to push the boundaries of mid-infrared waveguiding to ever longer wavelengths so we can characterise the molecular fingerprint region.
