Paper Abstract

Optical switches and modulators are essential components in integrated optics applications. In this paper, we propose a three terminal optical amplitude modulator embedded in a silicon-on-silicon rib waveguide and we show new experimental results performed on a quasi optimized structure. The optimization of the optoelectronic behavior of the device is possible, by using both the two-dimensional electrical (2-D) semiconductor simulation package MEDICI and optical simulation codes.
