Abstract
The proposed project will undertake the research, design, and development of key concepts and technologies for a high-speed electronically tunable channel filter, based on monolithically integrated ultra-high-resolution super-compact grating (UHR-SCG) technology that has been developed in OptoNet. The grating will be realized on Silicon-Photonic Electronic-Photonic Integrated (EPIC) Platform that has various large-scale manufacturing advantages. This project will be performed by a strong multidisciplinary team of industry and academic researchers, including device design and packaging experts from OptoNet Inc., and device physics and fabrication experts from Northwestern University. In Phase I of this project, we will deliver proof-of-concept high-speed tunable filter based on the UHR-SCG grating on EPIC platform utilizing semiconductor amplifiers as fast switches. The tunable filter chip will have 4 to 8 ITU-grid channels spanning 32nm wavelength bandwidth. The tuning speed will be<100nsecs.
