Robust and energy efficient heterogeneous light sources in silicon – Presented by Di Liang, Hewlett Packard Enterprise at the 19th edition European Conference on Integrated Optics, which takes place on 3 – 5 April 2017 at Eindhoven University of Technology, Blauwe Zaal in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
Large-scale computer installations are now severely limited by network bandwidth constraints and energy costs arising from architectural designs originally based on copper interconnects. Hewlett Packard Enterprise, former HP, joins the global effort to develop high-quality optical interconnects with our focuses on low-cost integration platform and minimal power consumption for our datacenter and supercomputer business. In this talk, I will review our effort in developing novel heterogeneous IIIV-on-silicon light sources with capabilities of power-free fine tuning and robust operation in harsh environment. Recent progress on silicon microring modulators, SiGe avalanche photodetectors, and integration with CMOS drivers will be discussed as well.
