Abstract

The nonlinear absorption properties of a germanium-on-silicon waveguide have been characterized across the two-photon absorption (TPA) transmission window. The results show that the TPA parameters in germanium waveguides are much stronger than the peak values in silicon, in good agreement with selected measurements conducted in bulk materials. Exploiting the large nonlinear absorption near the bandedge, efficient all-optical modulation is achieved with a modulation depth of ~8dB and a response time <5ps.

Currently under review.
