A study of GaN-based waveguide devices for long-wavelength optical communication was presented. The refractive indices of AlxGa1-xN with different Al concentrations were measured. Single-mode ridged optical waveguide devices were designed, fabricated, and characterized using GaN/AlGaN heterostructures. The feasibility of developing photonic integrated circuits for fiber-optical communications based on III-nitride wide-band-gap semiconductors was discussed.
