Compact, low capacitance optical modulators are vital for efficient, high-speed chip to chip optical interconnects. Electro-optic (EO) polymer cladding micro-ring resonator modulators have been fabricated and their performance is characterized. Optical modulators with ring diameters smaller than 50 microm have been demonstrated in a silicon nitride based(More)
