Abstract

An intersecting waveguide modulator which utilizes the carrier injection effects is presented and characterized. Using O+ implantation to render the implanted region electrically inactive, a well confined injection carrier channel is formed. This area can be driven to function as waveguide or as anti-waveguide. A transversal electrode switches the modulator from the on-state to the off-state or vice versa. By the use of carrier induced refractive index modeling and the finite difference beam propagation method simulation, good performance and small injection current of this modulator are predicted.
