The high vertical index contrast and the small thickness of thin InP membranes (200nm) bonded with BCB allow the achievement of very small devices. In this paper we will present some performances of such photonic integrated circuit building blocks (wires, sharp bends and 3dB splitters). Some preliminary results about passive cavities (ring resonators) will also be presented.
