A gain-integrated silicon photonic carrier with SOA-array for scalable optical switch fabrics

View publication


We built a 4-channel photonic carrier with input/output SiN waveguides and a flip-chip-attached SOA array, incorporating end-to-end reflection-management and mode-matching. All channels demonstrate fiber-to-fiber gain of >10dB and support error-free 4-λ × 25-Gb/s WDM links.
