Recent developments in membrane photonics promise enhanced performances for integrated devices and circuits [1]. One remaining technological challenge for membrane photonic devices lies in the n-type ohmic contacts on top of active devices. From the electrical point of view, the contact resistance needs to be minimized for devices with ever-smaller sizes to achieve high speed and low power consumption. Moreover, low optical loss from those metal contacts is required for devices integrated in a membrane with only submicron thickness.
