  • Publication number: 20230244095
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a thermo-optic component comprises the following steps: a) providing a silicon-on-insulator (SOI) substrate comprising: a surface layer made of single-crystal silicon, extending in a main plane and placed on a dielectric layer, itself placed on a carrier made of silicon, and at least one buried cavity, which is formed in the carrier and which opens under the dielectric layer, b) forming an optical waveguide extending in the main plane and comprising a core formed in the surface layer and encircled by an optical confinement layer including the dielectric layer, c) producing at least one heating element, on the optical waveguide, the heating element being positioned, in the main plane, plumb with a segment of the optical waveguide, or on either side of the segment, the heating element and the segment of the optical waveguide being located plumb with the at least one recessed buried cavity.

  • Publication number: 20100164048
    Abstract: The disclosure provides a method for fabricating a semiconductor substrate comprising the steps of: providing a semiconductor on insulator type substrate, providing a diffusion barrier layer and providing a second semiconductor layer. By providing the diffusion barrier layer, it becomes possible to suppress diffusion from the highly doped first semiconductor layer into the second semiconductor layer. The invention also relates to a corresponding semiconductor substrate and opto-electronic devices comprising such a substrate.
