.*Silicon Photonics •Photonics: • The Technology of emission transmission. control and detection of light (photons) almost always from the laser.

* Building Blocks of Silicon Photonics .

light will couple into the Si waveguide •This is evanescent coupling .*Light Source •Start with a cross sectional Indium Phosphide waveguide •Voltage is applied to the InP to emit light •If we bring a silicon waveguide up to the InP.

*The Hybrid Laser This ruby laser used a flash bulb as an optical pump Fully Reflective Mirror FLASH BULB Partially Reflective Mirror LASER BEAM RUBY CRYSTAL ROD 5 .

.

•Propagate a light signal down its length •Single mode vs. multimode fiber •Typical speed is 10 Gigabits per second •Potential for 20 Terabits per second •Currently used in business for wide area links •Currently carries TV signals and data communications .

.

.

•Laser Diodes (LD) •Alignment to fiber optic cables is critical .* Background Technology •Optical communications •Complimentary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) manufacturing process LIGHT SOURCES: •Light Emitting Diodes (LED).

*Why Silicon Photonics? •Speed of optical network communications •Terabits/second •Speed of microprocessor technologies •Dual core/multi core processors •Gigabits/second •Speed of electrical circuits •Start to have problems in low Gigabits/second range .
