Abstract
We present the experimental results of an error-free high-speed silicon optical modulator based on carrier depletion in a lateral 1.8 mm-long PIPIN diode embedded in a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. At 10 Gbit/s, the silicon optical modulator provides a large extinction ratio of 8.1 dB simultaneously with a low optical loss of 6 dB. The silicon modulator is a key element required to build and integrate photonic high performance data links.
