1. Surface-normal multiple quantum well electroabsorption modulators : for optical signal processing and asymmetric free-space communication
Sammanfattning : Electroabsorption is the physical phenomenon by which the absorption of light in a medium can be controlled by applying an electric field. The Quantum–Confined Stark Effect, which makes the absorption band–edge in quantum wells very field–dependent, together with the strong absorption peak provided by excitons, are the physical foundations for the success of electroabsorption modulators based on quantum well structures in telecommunication networks.

Sammanfattning : This thesis presents methods for optimization ofelectroabsorption modulators (EAM) and p-i-n photodiodes (PD)withrespect to high frequency (HF) performance. Differentreactive matching techniques are investigated such as lumpedmatching and integrated transmission line (TML) layouts includingoperation in the traveling-wave (TW) regime. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : External modulators will become key components in fiberoptical communica- tion systems operating at 40Gbit/s andhigher bitrates. Semiconductor electro- absorption (EA)modulators are promising candidates because of their high-speed potential, and their process compatibility with thecorresponding semi- conductor laser light sources.

Sammanfattning : Decades of efforts have pushed the replacement of electrical interconnects by optical links to the interconnects between computers, racks and circuit boards. It may be expected that optical solutions will further be used for inter-chip and intra-chip interconnects with potential benefits in bandwidth, capacity, delay, power consumption and crosstalk.
