Polymer-based high-speed data transmission devices and system applications (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

High performance silicon-based optical circuits and modules will be required for the future high bandwidth optical data transmission system applications. We are now engaging in fabrication of integrated optical waveguides and modules using hybrid structure of high performance functional photonic polymers and silicon photonics. We present recent progress of photonic polymers and waveguide-type device technologies for next generation integrated optical circuits. High performance photonic polymer is a potential candidate for functional optical waveguide material by combining silicon waveguide platform. Using electrooptic (EO) polymer limit of bandwidth and/or driving voltage of a silicon modulator can be overcome. Light-induced self-written (LISW) waveguide technology enables optical interconnection between optical components using photocurable resin. Athermal silicon optical waveguide can be achieved by using organic-Inorganic hybrid material with large negative thermooptic (TO) coefficient as a cladding material of silicon waveguide. By combining high performance functional photonic polymer and silicon waveguide, we attempt to realize integrated optical devices for next-generation optical interconnection application. Moreover, we present data transmission system demonstration using the hybrid modules.
