Peaking in ring modulators and application to ISI reduction

Peaking in Ring Resonators

Abstract:

A small signal analytical expression of peaking in the electro-optic response of ring modulators is derived and shown to closely match experimental results. E/O bandwidths above 40 GHz are obtained. The peaking is also used to open eye diagrams penalized by intersymbol interference with results reported at 32, 40 and 44 Gbps.
