SOI based waveguide devices are becoming more and more active. The main results of the devices investigated in our team are presented in the paper. Photonic crystal with sharp bends was made and its excess loss is 1.1±0.4dB per mirror. Two kinds of couplers, slot coupler and grating coupler, were successfully fabricated. Coupling loss of the slot coupler is < 3dB between sub-micron optical waveguides and micronscale optical fibers. A coupling efficiency of 40.7% and 3-dB bandwidth of > 40nm of the grating coupler are obtained. Microring and microdisk resonators were simulated and optimized. Their Q factors and extinction ratios are 5.3×104, 14dB, and 2.8×105, 10dB, respectively. SOI PIN diode electro-optical switches with microring, microdisk and MZI were developed. Rise and fall time is 0.37 ns and 2.57 ns, respectively, for a microdisk optical switch.
