Paper Abstract

A method of inverse design is applied to generate a new family of optical devices. Three ultracompact devices are presented of only a few microns thick; a focusing device, a wavelength de-multiplexer and an optimized optical source. The designs consist of a few layers of 0.4μm × 0.4μm square-shaped bars etched in gallium arsenide. The proposed designs are examples of a scattering optical element, a name introduced to define a class of computer-generated optical devices whose functionalities are based on the multiple scattering by their individual constituents. For realization of the aforementioned devices, two-dimensional photonic plates could be fabricated by only a single integrated circuit processing procedure followed by micromanipulation assembling.
