56 Gbps Si/GeSi integrated EAM

56 Gbps Si/GeSi integrated EAM
56 Gbps Si/GeSi integrated EAM
The growing demand for fast, reliable and low power interconnect systems requires the development of efficient and scalable CMOS compatible photonic devices, in particular optical modulators. In this paper, we demonstrate an innovative electro absorption modulator (EAM) developed on an 800 nm SOI platform; the device is integrated in a rib waveguide with dimensions of a 1.5 µm x 40 µm, etched on a selectively grown GeSi cavity. High speed measurements at 1566 nm show an eye diagram with dynamic ER of 5.2 dB at 56 Gbps with a power consumption of 44 fJ/bit.

Abstract

The growing demand for fast, reliable and low power interconnect systems requires the development of efficient and scalable CMOS compatible photonic devices, in particular optical modulators. In this paper, we demonstrate an innovative electro absorption modulator (EAM) developed on an 800 nm SOI platform; the device is integrated in a rib waveguide with dimensions of a 1.5 µm x 40 µm, etched on a selectively grown GeSi cavity. High speed measurements at 1566 nm show an eye diagram with dynamic ER of 5.2 dB at 56 Gbps with a power consumption of 44 fJ/bit.
