The interest in developing high-performance optical transmitter to meet the growing demands of short-reach optical interconnects has increased over the last decade. In contrast to the previous works where electronic–photonic integration were mostly limited to the physical coupling approach, we have introduced new design philosophy, where photonics and electronics must be considered as a single integrated system.

In this talk, I shall present the our recent 100Gb/s silicon photonics transmitter, where photonic and electronic devices are co-designed synergistically in terms of device packaging, power efficiency, operation speed, foot print and modulation format.

Optical photodetectors are at the forefront of photonic research since the rise of integrated optics. Photodetectors are fundamental building blocks for chip-scale optoelectronics, enabling conversion of light into an electrical signal. Such devices play a key role in many surging applications from communication and computation to sensing, biomedicine and health monitoring, to name a few. However, chip integration of optical photodetectors with improved performances is an on-going challenge for mainstream optical communications at near-infrared wavelengths. Here, we present recent advances in heterostructured silicon-germanium-silicon p-i-n photodetectors, enabling high-speed detection on a foundry-compatible monolithic platform.
