Abstract

The group velocity dispersion (GVD) of GaAs/AlGaAs GRINSCH waveguide structures containing single, strained InGaAs quantum wells at their centers was measured. Measurements were done for both TE and TM polarizations over a broad spectral range by fitting the Fabry-Perot fringes in transmission spectra recorded by a high-resolution Fourier Transform spectrometer. Overall, the results demonstrate the importance of including realistic two-dimensional polarization- and wavelength-dependent dielectric function models in waveguide dispersion calculations, even when there is only a single 7-nm-wide quantum well in the structure.
