We present thermally reconfigurable multiplexing devices based on silicon microring resonators with a low tuning power of 21 mW per free spectral range and a negligible thermal crosstalk for rings separated by 15 µm.
A key device in future high speed short reach interconnect technology will be the optical modulator. These devices, in silicon, have experienced dramatic improvements over the last 6 years and the modulation bandwidth has increased from a few tens of MHz to over 30 GHz. However, the demands of optical interconnects are significant. Here we describe an… (More)
We present a 12.5 Gbps silicon micro-ring modulator achieved by carrier depletion in a lateral pn diode. Tunability of the resonant wavelength is accomplished by means of a microheater, with an efficiency of 2.36 mW/nm.
—The technologies associated with integration and packaging have a significant impact on the overall system. In this paper, we review a silicon photonic " macrochip " system and its associated packaging that will allow dense wavelength-division multiplexed optical links to be intimately integrated and co-manufactured with the switching electronics. For this… (More)
We demonstrate a wavelength-tunable optical channelizing filter with a high extinction ratio (50 dB), a narrow bandwidth (2.4 GHz), and a large free spectral range (50 GHz) using high-order coupled silicon rings.
We have investigated the selective epitaxial growth of GeSi bulk material on silicon-on-insulator substrates by reduced pressure chemical vapor deposition. We employed AFM, SIMS, and Hall measurements, to characterize the GeSi heteroepitaxy quality. Optimal growth conditions have been identified to achieve low defect density, low RMS roughness with high… (More)
