Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Electro-optic modulators were fabricated on Si3N4/BaTiO3/MgO waveguides. Photonic crystals (PhCs) were introduced to minimize the phase velocity mismatch. The 3mm long PhC modulator has a Vπ of 5.5V and 3dB bandwidth greater than 15GHz.
