Abstract

State of the art and prospects regarding semiconductor compact modulators and transmitters for on–off keying and more advanced modulations formats for output bitrates of 100 Gb/s and above are discussed. The implementation of a monolithically integrated transmitter comprising laser and light-intensity modulator is described and the prospects for a fully integrated transmitter for more advanced modulation formats elucidated, all for 100 Gb/s output bitrate
