Characterization of the chirp of silicon optical modulators

Characterization of the chirp of silicon optical modulators
Characterization of the chirp of silicon optical modulators
The chirp of a fast silicon optical modulator is characterized in this paper. Two diagnostic methods, frequency resolved optical gating and optical modulation analysis, are employed respectively. We demonstrate that the output of silicon optical modulators have very small intrinsic chirp across the modulated pulses.

Abstract

The chirp of a fast silicon optical modulator is characterized in this paper. Two diagnostic methods, frequency resolved optical gating and optical modulation analysis, are employed respectively. We demonstrate that the output of silicon optical modulators have very small intrinsic chirp across the modulated pulses.
