Paper Abstract

This paper summarises our work on modulators for integration, either as a front end approach, or a co-location of custom electronic drivers, approaches that have yielded data rates up to 50Gb/s from a range of device variants. As well as more conventional depletion based devices, we also report photonic crystal cavity based modulators for very low power consumption, as well as other device variants aimed at improving device performance metrics.
