Abstract

Based on the interaction between different spatial modes, semiconductor Bragg-reflection waveguides (BRWs) provide a highly functional platform for non-linear optics. For achieving any desired quantum optical functionality, we must control and engineer the properties of each spatial mode. To reach this purpose we extend the Fabry-Perot technique and achieve a detailed linear optical characterization of dispersive multimode semiconductor waveguides. With this efficient broadband spectral method we gain direct experimental access to the relevant modes of our BRWs and determine their group velocities. Furthermore, we show that our waveguides have lower than expected loss coefficients. This renders them suitable for integrated quantum optics applications.
