On the Measurement of the Pockels Effect in Strained Silicon

Abstract: We measure the voltage dependent phase shift in silicon waveguides strained by a silicon nitride layer and show that, in our measurements, the phase shift is due to free carrier accumulation inside the waveguides. Nonetheless, inverting the applied voltage

Silicon photonics WDM transmitter with single section semiconductor mode-locked laser

Abstract: We demonstrate a wavelength domain-multiplexed (WDM) optical link relying on a single section semiconductor mode-locked laser (SS-MLL) with quantum dash (Q-Dash) gain material to generate 25 optical carriers spaced by 60.8 GHz, as well as silicon photonics (SiP) resonant

Silicon photonics WDM interconnects based on resonant ring modulators and semiconductor mode locked laser

Abstract: We demonstrate wavelength domain multiplexed (WDM) data transmission with a data rate of 14 Gbps based on optical carrier generation with a single-section semiconductor mode-locked laser (SS-MLL) and modulation with a Silicon Photonics (SiP) resonant ring modulator (RRM). 18
