We studied various types of 2D and 3D Si-based photonic crystal structures that are promising for future photonic integrated circuit application. With regard to 2D SOI photonic crystal slabs, we confirmed the formation of a wide photonic bandgap at optical communication wavelengths, and used structural tuning to realize efficient single-mode line-defect waveguides operating within the bandgap. As regards 3D photonic crystals, we used a combination of lithography and the autocloning deposition method to realize complicated 3D structures. We used this strategy to fabricate 3D full-gap photonic crystals and 3D/2D hybrid photonic crystals.
