Paper Abstract

Optical modulation is one of the key determinants to the operating speed of a network. In this work, we report an accurate methodology to study high-speed eye diagram from electrical and optical simulation data of individual modulators. The methodology constitutes electrical parameters such as capacitance, conductance and transitioning times to model time response and effective complex refractive index from optical simulations of phase shifter arms and in turn model the phase change and resultant loss induced by each arm. This methodology is suitable for interferometer-based optical devices and has been applied to silicon-based depletion mode modulators at 10-, 40-Gbps.
