Abstract

We modeled the photonic bands of ${\rm SiO}_2$-cladded Si lattice-shifted photonic crystal waveguides via machine learning and found a structure that generates low-dispersion slow light with a group index of approximately 20 in the full C-band at telecom wavelengths. The normalized delay-bandwidth product is as large as 0.45, which is close to the theoretical upper limit. The transition structure between this waveguide and a Si-channel waveguide was designed using an evolutional optimization, and a C-band average loss of 0.116 dB/transition was calculated. These results prove the possibility of further enhancing the versatility of slow light.
