Abstract

We demonstrate in-plane microfabricated Fabry–Perot cavities with cryogenically etched silicon/air distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) mirrors and integrated silicon-on-insulator rib waveguides. Several DBR configurations and cavity lengths were measured. Various devices exhibit Q=26963, FWHM=0.060nm, finesse F=489, free spectral range FSR=81.7nm, and DBR mirror reflectance R=99.4%. Thermo-optic tuning over 6.7nm is also demonstrated.
