Low-Power Data Center Transponders Enabled by Micrometer-scale Plasmonic Modulators

Baeuerle, Benedikt, et al. “Low-Power data center transponders enabled by Micrometer-scale plasmonic modulators.” Optical Fiber Communication Conference. Optical Society of America, 2020.


Plasmonic modulators allow for high-speed data modulation beyond 200 GBd at the micrometer-scale and low driving voltages below 700 mV. The compact footprint enables dense integration and makes plasmonic modulators a promising solution for next-generation optical interconnects.
