Paper Abstract

A novel silicon optical modulator based on surface plasmon resonance is proposed and the light modulation characteristics investigated theoretically. By utilizing Marcatili's approximation for the rectangular waveguide analysis, the propagation loss and the modulation depth are evaluated. It is expected that the modulation depth of 10 dB can be achieved for a modulator with less than 100-μm in length.
