IS05 – Thermal crosstalk mitigation in a dual-drive Mach-Zehnder Modulator

De S., Das R., Singh K., Mandalawi Y., Kleine-Ostmann T., Schneider T.

Dual-drive, PIN-diode based Mach-Zehnder modulators are pivotal for power-efficient and cost-effective CMOS compatible optical transceivers with small footprints. However, the basic chip materials have substantial thermal conductance resulting in thermal crosstalk, which eventually deteriorates the modulator performance in terms of bandwidth and data transmission capabilities. In this work, we simulate and analyze the influence of […]
