Abstract

We demonstrated 10.7 Gb/s reflective electroabsorption modulator monolithically integrated with semiconductor optical amplifier (REAM-SOA) using simplified fabrication process. Good performance at 10.7 Gb/s was obtained with an extinction ratio of > 10 dB and a power penalty of < 1 dB at a 10−9 bit error rate (BER) up to 20 km transmission. The device operated over a 50 nm spectral range within 1 dB received power variation at a 10−9 BER.
