Dispersion engineering in integrated silicon nitride waveguides is numerically and experimentally investigated. We show that by modifying the transversal dimensions of the silicon nitride core, it is possible to have a good control of the chromatic dispersion. The inaccuracies due to typical fabrication process in PECD-SiXNY films shows that the dispersion uncertainty is in the order of 20 ps/nm-km at 1550 nm. Silicon nitride waveguides were then fabricated using the same PECVD process and the chromatic dispersion was measured using a low-coherence frequency domain interferometry technique. A comparison between measurements and simulations shows good agreement.
