Abstract for Presentation

The silicon-based organic electro-optic materials and modulators



  High performance electro-optic modulator, as the key device of integrated ultra-wideband optical system, has become the focus of research, and the organic-based hybrid electro-optic modulator, which makes full use of the advantages of organic electro-optic (OEO) materials, such as high electro-optic coefficient, fast response speed, high bandwidth, easy processing/integration and low cost, attracts a lot of attention. In this report, we introduce a series of high-performance OEO materials which exhibit good properties in electro-optic activity and thermal stability. By optimizing the donor, acceptor and π-bridge structures of the chromophores, the microscopic first order hyperpolarizability can be effectively transformed into macroscopic electro-optic activity. In addition, the recent progress of silicon-organic modulators is reviewed which combines with silicon-on-insulator (SOI) waveguides and the functional organic nonlinear materials with large r33 to realize the large bandwidth and low half-wave voltage ultra-compact modulator. The high-performance integrated optical platform based on OEO materials is a promising solution for high-capacity optical communication.
