- Vertical junction silicon microdisk modulators and switchesMichael R Watts
Opt Express 19:21989-2003. 2011..5ns switching speeds, and power penalties of only 0.4dB. Through the use of vertical junctions in resonant modulators, we have achieved the lowest power consumption, lowest voltage, and smallest silicon modulators demonstrated to date...
