Abstract

This paper reports the design optimization of free carrier injection-based optical phase modulator fabricated on the silicon-on-insulator. The impact of four process parameters to the phase modulation of the device was carried out by using Taguchi method. Four process parameters involves, rib dimension of waveguide, applied voltage, doping concentration and doping position. The best combination of the process parameters for the optimum phase modulation of the device were determined by using the Numerical based simulator and Taguchi experimental design method. The fabrication was virtually done by using SILVACO TCAD simulator, consisting of a process simulator, ATHENA and device simulator, ATLAS. In this research, the most significant process parameter for phase modulation is applied voltage with 98% domination. The results show that the phase modulation of SOI-based optical phase modulator is 861° which is improved 76.8% after optimization approaches by Taguchi.
