We report on high speed operation of a Ge/SiGe multiple quantum well (MQW) electro-absorption modulator in a waveguide configuration. 23 GHz bandwidth is experimentally demonstrated from a 3 µm wide and 90 µm long Ge/SiGe MQW waveguide. The modulator exhibits a high extinction ratio of more than 10 dB over a wide spectral range. Moreover with a swing(More)
We investigate the room-temperature quantum-confined Stark effect in Ge/SiGe multiple quantum wells (MQWs) grown by low-energy plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition. The active region is embedded in a p-i-n diode, and absorption spectra at different reverse bias voltages are obtained from optical transmission, photocurrent, and differential transmission(More)
Electro-absorption from GeSi heterostructures is receiving growing attention as a high performance optical modulator for short distance optical interconnects. Ge incorporation with Si allows strong modulation mechanism using the Franz-Keldysh effect and the quantum-confined Stark effect from bulk and quantum well structures at telecommunication wavelengths.(More)
The integration of germanium (Ge)-rich active devices in photonic integrated circuits is challenging due to the lattice mismatch between silicon (Si) and Ge. A new Ge-rich silicon-germanium (SiGe) waveguide on graded buffer was investigated as a platform for integrated photonic circuits. At a wavelength of 1550 nm, low loss bends with radii as low as 12 µm(More)
We report room-temperature quantum-confined Stark effect in Ge/SiGe multiple quantum wells (MQWs) with light propagating parallel to the plane of the Ge/SiGe MQWs for applications in integrated photonics. Planar waveguides embedded in a p-i-n diode are fabricated in order to investigate the absorption spectra at different reverse bias voltages from optical(More)
Room-temperature quantum-confined Stark effect in a Ge/SiGe quantum-well structure is reported at the wavelength of 1.3 μm. The operating wavelength is tuned by the use of strain engineering. Low-energy plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition is used to grow 20 periods of strain-compensated quantum wells (8 nm Ge well and 12 nm Si(0.35)Ge(0.65) barrier)(More)
This work explores the use of Ge-rich graded-index Si<sub>1-</sub>xGex rib waveguides as building blocks to develop integrated nonlinear optical devices for broadband operation in the mid-IR. The vertical Ge gradient concentration in the waveguide core renders unique properties to the guided optical mode, providing tight mode confinement over a broadband(More)
Silicon-based photonics is now considered as the photonic platform for the next generation of on-chip communications. However, the development of compact and low power consumption optical modulators is still challenging. Here we report a giant electro-optic effect in Ge/SiGe coupled quantum wells. This promising effect is based on an anomalous(More)
An efficient approach to mitigate the howling effect in hearing aids is via the use of Acoustic Feedback Cancellation (AFC). In this paper, the use of a Forward Linear Predictor (FLP) is investigated to improve the performance of an AFC system in multi-band hearing aids. The FLP is used to predict the speech input signal before eliminating it from the error(More)
The mid-Infrared (mid-IR) photonic integrated platform is recently drawing attention due to its foreseen potential as alternative compact solution to several challenges and limitations taking place in current mainstream technologies [1]. Improved performance is expected in a wide palette of topics such as sensing, thermal imaging, nonlinear optical devices,(More)
