Abstract
In this work, the simplified modeling of silicon phase modulators is presented along with a comparison among different options of modulators. The proposed simplified model enables a substantial reduction in computational effort while maintaining a good accuracy. The presented model is validated against complete 3D-simulations by means of the design of four different modulators. Furthermore, with the help of the model a deep insight on the performances tradeoffs in the choose and design of silicon modulators is provided.
