Paper Abstract

We present an array of electro-optic Bragg gratings for on-chip optical waveguide interconnect applications. These electro-optical gratings can serve as switchable couplers to couple high-speed optical signals from a vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSEL) to on-chip polymeric waveguides and from waveguides to photodetectors. The unique switching feature provides a promising solution to facilitate dynamically reconfigurable on-chip optical interconnects architecture for intra-chip, chip-to-chip and board-to-board data communications. We demonstrate on-chip switched optical waveguide interconnect using electro-optic grating and polymeric channel waveguides on a silicon substrate.
