  1. 1. Study on electroabsorption modulators and grating couplers for optical interconnects

    Author : Yongbo Tang; Urban Westergren; Dries Van Thourhout; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Photonic integrated circuit; optical interconnect; transmission line; traveling-wave; electro-absorption modulator; hybrid silicon evanescent platform; grating coupler; vertical coupling scheme; optical antenna; lag effect; polarization beam splitter; Photonics; Fotonik; SRA - ICT; SRA - Informations- och kommunikationsteknik;

    Abstract : Decades of efforts have pushed the replacement of electrical interconnects by optical links to the interconnects between computers, racks and circuit boards. It may be expected that optical solutions will further be used for inter-chip and intra-chip interconnects with potential benefits in bandwidth, capacity, delay, power consumption and crosstalk.

    Abstract : To follow the trend of the data traffic and to limit the size of the hyperscale data centers, communication solutions offering small footprint, low cost and low power consumption are needed. Optical interconnects used in data centers are mostly short reach (approximately 100 m) based on GaAs-based 850 nm vertical-cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) and OM4 multimode fibers (MMF).
