Once you have created an account, installed LightWave and registered the trial serial to obtain the 30 day license key. You can now install the license to unlock the full version of LightWave for 30 days: Download the license key (LICENSE.LWK) from the link listed under the relevant trial product on your Account page Run LightWave again (if you closed the Splash screen) Drag the LICENSE.LWK onto the Splash screen (download it first) that appears when you first start the application Restart LightWave to activate the 30 day trial mode Enjoy! Please Note:
We demonstrate a photonic waveguide technology based on a two-material core, in which light is controllably and repeatedly transferred back and forth between sub-micron thickness crystalline layers of Si and LN bonded to one another, where the former is patterned and the latter is not. In this way, the foundry-based wafer-scale fabrication technology for silicon photonics can be leveraged to form lithium-niobate based integrated optical devices. Using two different guided modes and an adiabatic mode transition between them, we demonstrate a set of building blocks such as waveguides, bends and couplers which can be used to route light underneath an unpatterned slab of LN, as well as outside the LN-bonded region, thus enabling complex and compact lightwave circuits in LN alongside Si photonics with fabrication ease and low cost.
