Abstract

Silicon has been chosen as a photonic medium due to its special characteristics that is not possessed by other materials. Here, we reported the performance of Silicon on Insulator (SOI) phase modulator. The phase modulator devices have been integrated in the silicon-on-insulator (SOI) waveguide by using the p-i-n diode structure. The electrical device performance is predicted by using the 2-D semiconductor package SILVACO (CAD) software under DC operation. The performance of the modulator is evaluated in terms of its modulation efficiency and absorption loss. Modulation efficiency (V πLπ) is minimized at a greater applied voltage. Nevertheless, the absorption loss increased at higher injected free carriers.
