In this two-year seedling project Georgia Institute of Technology successfully demonstrated the unique features of the phase-change materials PCMs for enabling a new paradigm in design and implementation of reconfigurable integrated nano-photonic structures with unprecedented features. Although the overarching goal of this project was the demonstration of the ultra-miniaturized phase shifters for the Modular Optical Aperture Building Blocks MOABBprogram, the research has applicability well beyond the phase shifters originally focused on and enables the creation of anew platform that can be used to manipulate light strongly using subwavelength features. We strongly believe that the demonstrated hybrid Si SiNPCM platform can address multiple challenges in the use of integrated photonics for state-of-the-art applications.
