Si photonics could enable a chip-scale platform for monolithic integration of optics and microelectronics for applications of optical interconnects in which high data streams are required in a small footprint. This paper discusses mechanisms in silicon photonics for modulating and switching light. These mechanisms together with recent advances of fabrication techniques have enabled the demonstration of ultra-compact active silicon photonic components with very low loss.
