Abstract
Silica based planar technology on silicon has been identified as a very serious source of devices for optical communication s:ystems. Low temperature fabrication of passive and active structures is of special interest as it allows monolithic integration with temperature sensitive semiconductor components on a common silicon platform. Standard PEC\'D (Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapour Deposition) processing for fabrication of silica based optical waveguides has been investigated to optimize the process parameters. We chose a high power process regime with high ratio between nitrous oxide and silane gas flows as the best conditions. Significant improvement in optical properties of silica-on-silicon planar waveguides for optical communication in the 1.50 -1 .55 tmwavelength range has been obtained.
