Polymer photonics – challenges and approaches for a highly scalable platform in ultradense optical communications

Share

Recently, with the emergence of bandwidth-intensive applications such as high-resolution streaming media, 5G, cloud-based service delivery, and the Internet of Things, fiber communication network or data traffic has increased exponentially. This rapid increase in traffic in data communications highlights the increased energy demand in traditional information and communications technologies. Given the implementation cost and power consumption aspects, one of the future challenges is to continue developing core technologies such as transceiver devices and cost-effective optical components. Among the different types of materials used in the modulator device, the high-efficient electro-optic (EO) polymer has recently received intense research highlights due to the invention of achievable 100 Gbaud and beyond signaling with the extremely reduced power consumption.


EO polymers offer important advantages and promise the performance as,

Over 70 GHz EO bandwidth, theoretically beyond 300 GHz

120 Gbaud NRZ electro-optic signaling with sub-one Vpp.

Thermal stability testing fully satisfy Telcordia standards or higher temperatures.

Promising useful PAM4 signaling beyond 200 Gbit/s

A highly scalable platform for ultrahigh and ultradense optical communications

Possible thermal resistance up to 110oC and high ambient temperature operation at 100oC
