A novel method for characterization of distributed Bragg reflectors in photonic integrated circuits

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

We present a novel and accurate method for characterizing the reflection spectra of distributed Bragg reflectors (DBRs) using optical frequency domain reflectometry (OFDR). A compact test structure with integrated reference mirror and photodetector is designed which overcomes the dependence on the fiber-to-waveguide coupling.
