Distributed electrode Mach-Zehnder modulator with double-pass phase shifters and integrated inductors

View publication


A novel high-speed Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM) fully integrated into a 90 nm CMOS process is presented. The MZM features 'double-pass' optical phase shifter segments, and the first use of integrated inductors in a 'velocity-matched' distributed-electrode configuration.
