We designed and fabricated a suspended SiC-based membrane high contrast grating (HCG) reflectors. The rigorous coupled-wave analysis (RCWA) was employed to verify the structural parameters including grating periods, grating height, filling factors and air-gap height. From the optimized simulation results, the designed SiC-based membrane HCG has a wide reflection stopband (reflectivity (R) <90%) of 135 nm for the TE polarization, which centered at 480 nm. The suspended SiC-based membrane HCG reflectors were fabricated by nanoimprint lithography and two-step etching technique. The corresponding reflectivity was measured by using a micro-reflectivity spectrometer. The experimental results show a high reflectivity (R<90%), which is in good agreement with simulation results. This achievement should have an impact on numerous III-N based photonic devices operating in the blue wavelength or even ultraviolet region.
