Abstract

500-Pm-long membrane InGaAsP-based Mach-Zehnder modulators (MZMs) and MQW-based semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) are integrated by using regrowth techniques on Si platforms. The fibre-to-fibre loss-less condition achieves with 24-mA SOA bias. The MZM operates at a 10.8-dB extinction ratio with 4 Vpp for 28-Gbit/s NRZ signals.
