ABSTRACT
Refractive indices of Al[sub x]Ga[sub 1-x]N with different Al concentrations have been measured in infrared wavelength regions. Single-mode ridged optical waveguide devices using GaN/AlGaN heterostructures have been designed, fabricated, and characterized for operation in 1550 nm wavelength window. The feasibility of developing photonic integrated circuits based on III-nitride wide-band-gap semiconductors for fiber-optical communications has been discussed.
