Driver-Integrated 56-Gb/s segmented electrode silicon Mach Zehnder modulator using optical-domain equalization

View publication


We report an IC-driven silicon photonic segmented electrode Mach Zehnder modulator exploiting optical domain feed-forward equalization resulting in 56-Gb/s NRZ operation with BER<10-12. The result could enable FEC-free links for latency sensitive datacenter applications.
