Abstract

Amorphous Al2O3 is an attractive platform for integrated photonics, providing active and passive functionalities. We have developed an integration procedure to create active and passive regions at the same level on one wafer. This fabrication process reduces the number of fabrication steps compared to vertical integration of two materials. The main advantage is that all structures are defined within a single photolithography and etching step and are therefore automatically aligned. As a proof of principle, we demonstrated the luminescence of an active ring resonator with passive bus waveguide.
