Abstract

We propose and experimentally demonstrate the first THz bandwidth on-chip photonic fractional Hilbert transformer. The reported design uses a novel approach, based on a uniform and nonapodized single phase-shifted integrated waveguide Bragg grating on silicon, where the fractional order P can be engineered by simply varying the effective index modulation δn. Experimental results for P=1.5 show very low processing error for a broad range of pulse bandwidths between 77 GHz and 2.07 THz, corresponding to a time-bandwidth product as high as 27.
