This demonstration could represent the beginning of an era of chip-scale electronic–photonic systems with the potential to transform computing system architectures, enabling more powerful computers, from network infrastructure to data centres and supercomputers.
Quantum-correlated photon pairs generated in a commercial 45 nm complementary metal-oxide semiconductor microelectronic chip
This proof-of-principle device demonstrates the potential of commercial CMOS microelectronics as an advanced quantum photonics platform with the capability of large volumes and pristine process control, where state-of-the-art high-speed digital circuits could interact with quantum photonic circuits.
In this paper, we demonstrate a highly directional vertical grating coupler with > 70% chip-to-fiber coupling efficiency (CE) and a 78 nm 1- dB bandwidth fabricated in a 45 nm commercially available microelectronics SOI CMOS process.
A silicon-photonic link is monolithically-integrated in a bulk CMOS process for the first time.
Based on a novel, “spoked-ring” active microcavity, we demonstrate optical modulators in an unmodified 45nm SOI CMOS process at 5Gbps with <5fJ/bit energy consumption; and filters with record thermal tuning efficiency of 2µW/GHz.
