In this paper, we demonstrated recent progress on Si based optical components for advanced optical communication systems. The polarization beam splitter with extinction ratio of more than 20dB and the optical 90° hybrid having phase deviation within ±5° were obtained using MMI structures. The 12Gb/s modulators and the 20GHz photodetectors were measured. Benefiting from the unique properties of silicon modulator, an error-free 80Km transmission of the signals generated by our silicon carrier-depletion Mach-Zehnder modulator was also demonstrated at 10Gb/s and the power penalty was as low as 1.15dB. These results show that silicon photonics has a great potential in advanced optical communication systems.
