Abstract

We have proposed and developed a new type of electroabsorption modulator (EAM) that employs both optical absorption and interferometric extinction. The EAM operates at a record-low voltage of 0.2 V at 25.8-Gbit/s modulation, which can reduce optical transmitter power consumption and allows the adoption of cost-effective CMOS drivers.
