Silicon Photonics Modulator Architectures for Multi-Level Signal Generation and Transmission

Abstract

We present two SiP modulator architectures for PAM-4 signal generation. We demonstrate the transmission of 56 Gbaud PAM-4 over 1 km of SMF. An 84 Gbaud PAM-4 generation below KP4 FEC threshold is also achieved. OCIS codes: (130.0130); (230.2090); (230.4110);
