Tantalum Pentoxide (Ta2O5) films exhibit high refractive index (2.1 @ 1550 nm), transparency between 300 nm and 2000 nm wavelengths, compatibility with silicon processing techniques and high photosensitivity [1], making them ideal for realising compact multifunctional planar lightwave circuits (PLCs).
