Objective- To design Graphene-Silicon based rib waveguide and reduce the losses in the strip in order to meet the requirement for ultra-fast & ultrahigh optical bandwidth communication and computing in integrated optical devices. Method –Propagation losses and effective refractive index are the two key parameters. In order to meet the objective, the effects of Graphene for manufacturing passive devices/components in the field of Integrated Photonic like integrated optical waveguide have been analysed by measuring the changes in propagation losses and effective refractive index of the silicon photonics devices for operating at different wavelengths. Findings- We have presented the design and simulation of SOI (Silicon-on-Insulator) platforms with 2D layer materials (graphene) which has been used along with their mode of propagation, effective refractive index (ne f f ), propagation losses (dB/cm) and varying wavelength range for optimum performance. In addition to this, we have also calculated the boundary limit for both the speed and bandwidth. We also reported the development of Silicon rib waveguide, Graphene-Silicon based rib waveguide and Ge on SOI with graphene later at the top of strip waveguide.Minimum loss of strip waveguide is 2.9 dB/cm which has been obtained for Mid-IR wavelength generally used for high power mid- IR sensing.
