Paper Abstract

An intersecting waveguide modulator which utilizes the carrier injection effects is presented and characterized. Using O+ implantation to render the implanted region electrically inactive, a well confined injection carrier channel is formed. This area can be driven to function as waveguide or as antiwaveguide. A transversal electrode switches the modulator from the On-state to the Off-state or vice versa. By the use of carrier induced refractive index modeling and the finite difference beam propagation method (FD-BPM) simulation, good performance and small injection current ofthis modulator are predicted.
