ALLEGRO News on Publication “Modulation Enhancement Through Resonant Microwave-Photonic Co-Design”

Abstract Above 3 dB modulation enhancement is demonstrated by cointegrating a resonant microwave circuit with a lumped-element plasmonic modulator. The resonant circuit can compensate electronic driver roll-offs and enable increased transmitter bandwidths. Furthermore, the circuit is complemented by an integrated bias-Tee to tune the modulator.
