Abstract

Electro-Absorption-Transceiver (EAT) structures used as efficient Travelling-Wave Electro-Absorption-Modulator (TWEAM) as well as Travelling-Wave-Photo-Detector (TWPD) are investigated. Clear eye-openings at 50Gb/s for modulation and for detection are presented. Transmission over 2.2km and 5km SSMF were achieved.
