Abstract

We report on the monolithic integration of multimode interference couplers, Bragg gratings, and delay-line interferometers on an electro-optic polymer platform capable of modulation directly at 100Gb/s. We also report on the hybrid integration of InP active components with the polymer structure using the butt-coupling technique. Combining the passive and the active components, we demonstrate a polymer-based, external cavity laser with 17 nm tuning range and the optical assembly of an integrated 100Gb/s transmitter, and we reveal the potential of the electro-optic polymer technology to provide the next generation integration platform for complex, ultra-high-speed optical transceivers.
