- Ultra-low power modulators using MOS depletion in a high-Q SiO₂-clad silicon 2-D photonic crystal resonatorSean P Anderson
Institute of Optics, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY 14627, USA
Opt Express 18:19129-40. 2010..We further show that by using MOS charge depletion this microcavity can be the basis for a modulator with a switching energy as low as 1 fJ/bit...
- Experimental demonstration of evanescent coupling and photon confinement in oxide-clad silicon microcavitiesSean P Anderson
Institute of Optics, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York 14627, USA
Opt Lett 36:2698-700. 2011..We further show that well over 90% of the resonant field is confined within the cavity's silicon layer, which is necessary if the microcavity is to be used as a high-efficiency electro-optic modulator...
