Scaling-up optical transmission capacity through silicon photonics (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Wei Shi

Paper Abstract

Next-generation fiber-optic communication systems require dramatically increased complexity that cannot be obtained using discrete optical components. Silicon photonics has a unique capacity of handling complexity. We review our recent progress in high-speed silicon photonic transmitters and space-division multiplexers to scale the capacity of fiber-optic networks towards terabits-per-second (Tb/s) per optical interface and petabits-per-second (Pb/s) per transmission link.
