We report our advances in development of subwavelength engineered silicon photonic devices for near- and mid-infrared applications. By periodically patterning Si with a pitch small enough to suppress diffraction, we synthesize an effective photonic medium with refractive index between those of Si and the cladding material. This technique releases new degrees of freedom in engineering of light-matter interaction, chromatic dispersion and light propagation in Si photonic waveguides. We present an overview of our recent results in the realization of novel devices including filters and waveguides for near- and mid-infrared wavelength range.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
