Paper Abstract

An electro-optic modulator based on Mach-Zehnder interferometer and embedded PIN diode is demonstrated using silicon nanophotonic waveguide. Measurement results show that the device has high modulation efficiency with a VπL figure of merit of 1.14 V·mm, high modulation depth of 96.27%, and large optical bandwidth from 1500 to 1600 nm. Transmission data rate up to 0.2 Gbps is demonstrated and the rise and fall time are 3.74 ns and 640 ps, respectively.
