Nano- and micro-photonics are the key-enabling tools for future integrated components and circuitry operating at low power and high speed. By using a strip-loaded platform, we show how we can dramatically reduce the complexity, in terms of fabrication and tolerances, of the most advanced devices. Different configurations of multimode interference devices are presented. We show the design, fabrication, and optical characterization of these components.
