Paper Abstract

Low energy operation is a must for using silicon photonic system to replace the conventional electrical interconnection systems. Three energy-saving approaches in silicon photonics are highlighted in this paper: low driving voltage for Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM), negative chirp compensation for MZM-based long-haul transmission, and athermal filter for wavelength division multiplexing (WDM). These methods serve to reduce energy consumption of modulation and WDM, and are thus valuable to the development of future communication systems.
