Silicon nitride is demonstrated as a high performance and cost-effective solution for dense integrated photonic circuits in the visible spectrum. Experimental results for nanophotonic waveguides fabricated in a standard CMOS pilot line with losses below 0.71dB/cm in an aqueous environment and 0.51dB/cm with silicon dioxide cladding are reported. Design and(More)
We propose an ultra-broadband multimode interference (MMI) coupler with a wavelength range exceeding the O, E, S, C, L and U optical communication bands. For the first time, the dispersion property of the MMI section is engineered using a subwavelength grating structure to mitigate wavelength dependence of the device. We present a 2 × 2 MMI design with a(More)
High-performance silicon nitride focusing grating couplers with AlCu/TiN reflectors for a visible wavelength (660 nm) have been designed and fabricated in a standard complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor pilot line. The influence of the bottom oxide cladding thickness on the grating decay length and efficiency is theoretically and experimentally(More)
A polarization rotator, suitable for integration in a polarization diversity optical receiver fabricated in InP technology, is proposed. The device, based on a two steps waveguide rotator, includes tapered input and output ports that provide very low insertion loss (<0.04 dB). An extinction ratio of 40 dB at 1550 nm wavelength is calculated, comparable or(More)
We report on the design of Silicon Mach-Zehnder carrier depletion modulators relying on epitaxially grown vertical junction diodes. Unprecedented spatial control over doping profiles resulting from combining local ion implantation with epitaxial overgrowth enables highly linear phase shifters with high modulation efficiency and comparatively low insertion(More)
We experimentally investigate an optical link relying on silicon photonics transmitter and receiver components as well as a single section semiconductor mode-locked laser as a light source and a semiconductor optical amplifier for signal amplification. A transmitter based on a silicon photonics resonant ring modulator, an external single section mode-locked(More)
We present a novel resonant Mach-Zehnder modulator whose arms are each loaded with five identical resonators. Size and power consumption are aggressively reduced compared to conventional modulators based on linear phase shifters. At the same time, a large optical bandwidth of 3.8 nm is maintained. We experimentally demonstrate open eye diagrams at 30 Gbps(More)
