Poster Abstract:
Optical elements, such as photonics crystal prisms and lenses, were nanofabricated by patterning a square lattice of air holes in two types focusing properties of these devices were tested using a scanning probe optical microscope. These tailor-made negative index materials nanofabricated on monolithic or hybrid platform such as InP/InGaAsP and/or SOI can be used as a basis for designing optical elements for integrated photonic circuits.
