Optical transceiver engine based on 12 μm Silicon-on-insulator waveguides and VCSELs

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference articleScientific

Abstract

In this paper, we report the fabrication of an optical tranceiver engine that is based on a 12μm silicon on insulator (SOI) waveguide platform and directly modulated vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs). The main motivation for using 12 μm thick SOI waveguides is low-loss coupling to standard SM fibers with relaxed
alignment tolerances. We demonstrate 25.7Gb/s operation of the complete optical interconnect link channel.
