An introduction to InP-based generic integration technology
The paper explains the concept of generic photonic integration technology using the technology developed by the COBRA research institute of TU Eindhoven as an example, and it describes the current status and prospects of generic InP-based integration technology.
Grating-Based Optical Fiber Interfaces for Silicon-on-Insulator Photonic Integrated Circuits
In this paper, we review our work on efficient interfaces between a silicon-on-insulator photonic IC and a single-mode optical fiber based on grating structures. Several device configurations are
Expanding the Silicon Photonics Portfolio With Silicon Nitride Photonic Integrated Circuits
The high index contrast silicon-on-insulator platform is the dominant CMOS compatible platform for photonic integration. The successful use of silicon photonic chips in optical communication
Nonlinear properties of and nonlinear processing in hydrogenated amorphous silicon waveguides.
It is observed that the nonlinear optical properties of these waveguides degrade with time, but that this degradation can be reversed by annealing the samples.
56 Gb/s Germanium Waveguide Electro-Absorption Modulator
We report a Germanium waveguide electro-absorption modulator with electro-optic bandwidth substantially beyond 50 GHz. The device is implemented in a fully integrated Si photonics platform on 200 mm
Low-Threshold Heterogeneously Integrated InP/SOI Lasers With a Double Adiabatic Taper Coupler
We report on a heterogeneously integrated InP/silicon-on-insulator (SOI) laser source realized through divinylsiloxane-bis-benzocyclobutene (DVS-BCB) wafer bonding. The hybrid lasers present several
On-chip parametric amplification with 26.5 dB gain at telecommunication wavelengths using CMOS-compatible hydrogenated amorphous silicon waveguides.
This work presents what they believe to be the first study of parametric amplification in hydrogenated amorphous silicon waveguides and measures nonlinear parameter and bandgap in this area.
Nanophotonic Devices for Optical Interconnect
This work focuses on microdisk-laser-based transmitters and discusses improved design and advanced functionality including all-optical wavelength conversion and flip-flops and the performance of a wavelength selective detector.
An octave-spanning mid-infrared frequency comb generated in a silicon nanophotonic wire waveguide
This work takes a different approach to spectral broadening of mid-infrared frequency combs and investigates CMOS-compatible highly nonlinear dispersion-engineered silicon nanophotonic waveguides on a silicon-on-insulator chip and demonstrates phase-coherent comb spectra broadened on a room-temperature-operating CMos-compatible chip.
High efficiency grating coupler between silicon-on-insulator waveguides and perfectly vertical optical fibers.
A high-efficiency waveguide-to-fiber grating coupler for silicon-on-insulator waveguides and the ability to use a perfectly vertical positioned optical fiber simplifies the packaging of the photonic integrated circuit.
