We apply the antiresonant reflecting layers arrangement to silicon-on-insulator based photonic crystal waveguides. Several layered structures with different combinations of materials (Si-SiO2, Si3N4-SiO2) and layer topology have been analysed. Numerical modelling using 3D Finite-Difference Time-Domain method reveals promising low-loss results with potential for competing with membrane-like photonic crystal waveguides.
