Paper Abstract

Micro-ring modulators for use in high-speed telecommunication transceivers designed for silicon-on-insulator (SOI) for 2 μm wavelength operation are described and simulated with comparison to 1.55 μm. Device simulations show improved DC modulation performance due to the free-carrier effect described in the plasma dispersion relations which is stronger for longer wavelengths. WDM applications are described and simulated. Micro-ring modulator devices were designed and fabricated at A*STAR IME and are pending measurement.
