One of the limitations of thermal reconfiguration in silicon photonics is its slow response time. At the same time, there is a tradeoff between the reconfiguration speed and power consumption in conventional reconfiguration schemes that poses a challenge in improving the performance of microheaters. In this work, we theoretically and experimentally demonstrate that the high thermal conductivity of silicon can be exploited to tackle this tradeoff through direct pulsed excitation of the device… CONTINUE READING
