We present two novel capacitive modulator phase shifter architectures using a vertical oxide. The first structure consists of a vertical oxide slot embedded in a silicon waveguide along the propagation direction. The second structure is based on a sub-wavelength approach, with several periodic vertical oxide layers along the propagation direction. This paper focuses on the design of the modulator devices and the simulation of their performances.
