Paper Abstract

This paper focuses on latest progress in experimental and theoretical studies on silicon-based carrier-depletion PNjunction phase shifters in terms of high modulation efficiency for energy-efficient photonic networks of high transmission capacity. Modulation efficiency of rib-waveguide phase shifters having various PN-junction configuration are characterized with respect to DC figure of merit defined for phase shifters using carrier-plasma dispersion as the physical principle of refractive-index modulation. In addition, RF drive voltage required for 10-Gb/s on-off keying is characterized for rib-waveguide phase shifters including lateral and vertical PN-junction configurations.
