Nanophotonic is an emerging technology considered as one of the key solutions for future generation on-chip interconnects. However, silicon photonic devices are highly sensitive to temperature variation. Under a given chip activity, this leads to a lower laser efficiency and a drift of wavelengths of optical devices (on-chip lasers and microring resonators (MRs)), which results in a higher Bit Error Ratio (BER). In this paper, we propose to jointly tune the on-chip lasers and and MRs in order… CONTINUE READING
