TriPleX is a versatile dielectric platform based on alternating Si3N4 and SiO2 layers, fabricated with CMOS compatible equipment. TriPleX waveguides are very low loss over a wide wavelength range (400 nm-2.35 μm) available in several commercialized geometries. The functionality of the TriPleX platform is captured by verified basic building blocks. The corresponding library and associated design kit is available for Multi Project Wafer (MPW) runs. Higher integration levels and hybrid combinations with other commercially available platforms such as InP and SOI is possible through on-chip, low-loss spotsize convertors.
Especially the hybrid combination with InP yields very powerful additional components like integrated small bandwidth lasers, tunable over the whole C-band. Several examples of applications will be provided.
