First All-Silicon Optical Transmitter at 100 Gbps

Silicon photonics researchers from the Opto­electronics Research Centre (ORC) at the University of Southampton have demons­trated the first all-silicon optical transmitter at 100 Gbps and beyond without the use of digital signal processing. The optical modulator almost doubles the maximum data rate of current state-of-the-art devices, demons­trating the potential for low power low-cost all-silicon solutions that […]
