Abstract
In this paper, a new 1x4 multimode interference (MMI) SOI optical interconnects based on waveguide technology is presented. The MMI couplers including 2-D periodic air pads are analyzed. Especially the output powers adjustment of MMI SOI optical interconnects with considering the positions of those 2-D periodic air pads is studied. The SOI waveguide MMI interconnects is designed at wavelength 1.55 (mu) m region. We use beam propagation method to analyze the mode pattern. The mode patterns give the information of the power distributions of the output plane induced by guided wave propagating through those air pads. We analyze two cases or layout 40 pads and 70 pads for comparison.
