© 2018 Optical Society of America. Slow-light devices have been attracting a great amount of attention owing to their potential applications in future optical networks and information-processing systems. In this paper we propose two types of silicon wire waveguides with metamaterials, which are potentially applicable to the deceleration of light speed, and we analyze the slow-light effect by using the homogenization-based mode analysis method. The derived dispersion relation indicates that a group index larger than 70 can be obtained with a propagation loss of ∼0.7 dB/μm near the resonant frequency of the metamaterial.
