Spatial division multiplexing (SDM) for next-generation ultra-high capacity optical transmission system
Hidenori Takahashi

Spatial division multiplexing (SDM) is a promising technology to dramatically extend transmission capacity for next-generation optical transmission systems. To date, the latest transmission capacity reached to 10 petabits per second using over 100 spatial channels. We will review the latest trends and present our recent activities on SDM.

Huai-Yung Wang Award Candidate Tri-color Laser Diode Based 75-km Long-Reach QAM OFDM Link with Single-Carrier Modulation
Huai-Yung Wang;Yu-Chieh Chi;Gong-Ru Lin

A tri-color LD with single-carrier modulation is demonstrated for 75-km QAM OFDM link with suppressing the dispersion. After 75-km fiber, the 36-Gbit/s 64-QAM OFDM data is obtain with the SNR, BER and EVM of 21.44 dB, 2.9E-3 and 8.47%, respectively. Moreover, the power penalty can be optimized to 3.1 dB.

Chih-Hsien Chen Award Candidate High speed electroabsorption modulator by using local quantum well intermixing
Chih-Hsien Chen;Po-Yun Wang;Rih-You Chen;Yang-Jeng Chen;Yi-Jen Chiu

A new scheme of fabricating electroabsorption modulator (EAM) waveguide based on quantum well intermixing has been proposed and demonstrated. Large blue shift in quantum well energy level has been made locally for defining optical waveguide. High-speed modulation with bandwidth of >30GHz has been shown.

Guan-Hong Chen Award Candidate Silicon Photonics Receiver for 400 Gbit/s Ethernet
Guan-Hong Chen;Yung Hsu;Chun-Yen Chuang;Yuan-Chia Chang;Chi-Wai Chow;Jyehong Cheng;Chien-Hung Yeh;Xinru Wu;Hon-Ki Tsang

A 400-Gbit/s Ethernet (GbE) integrated silicon photonics receiver is proposed and demonstration. 400-Gbit/s pulse-amplitude-modulation-4 (PAM-4) over 10-km fiber transmission satisfying the IEEE P802.3bs requirement is achieved.

Yin-Jui Chen Award Candidate High-Speed Silicon Mach-Zehnder Modulators Integrated with CMOS Driver Circuits
Yin-Jui Chen;Ming-Chang Lee

A low-voltage, dual-drive Si Mach-Zehnder modulator packaged with CMOS drivers is demonstrated. The modulator can operate at speed up to 25 Gbaud 4-level pulse amplitude modulation (PAM-4) for 50Gbps data transmission. The packaged device can operate at 25Gbps NRZ On-off keying (OOK) optical signal.
