The refractive index modulation associated with the implantation of oxygen or silicon into waveguides formed in silicon-on- insulator (SOI) has been investigated to determine the feasibility of producing planar, implantation induced Bragg grating optical filters. A two-dimensional coupled mode theory-based simulation suggests that relatively short grating lengths, on the order of a thousand microns, can exhibit sufficient wavelength suppression, of > 10 dB, using the implantation technique. Fabricated planar implanted slab-guided SOI waveguides demonstrated an extinction of −10 dB for TE modes and −6 dB for TM modes for the case of oxygen implantation. Extinctions of −5 dB and −2 dB have been demonstrated with silicon implantation.
