PROJECT TITLE :
Low-Power Operation in a Silicon Switch Based on an Asymmetric Mach–Zehnder Interferometer
Mach–Zehnder interferometer (MZI) structures are widely used as optical switches in photonic integrated circuits. But, power consumption is still the key parameter to make such devices sensible within the silicon platform, significantly for those primarily based on the thermo-optic impact. A brand new approach to significantly decrease the ability consumption of a silicon switch based on an asymmetric MZI, along with an optimum choice of the operation wavelengths, is proposed. A power consumption reduction up to 50p.c is experimentally demonstrated in agreement with simulation results.
