Although switching techniques based on charge injection in silicon have progressed greatly in recent years, switching energies are still above 10 fJ/bit, which is considered the threshold for practical implementation in on-chip optical interconnects1. This is due primarily to silicon’s relatively weak electro-optic response2, as well as the large physical extent of existing switching geometries, both of which increase the energy required to achieve switching. By using a resonant approach in… CONTINUE READING
