  • Clock and Data Recovery IC for 40Gb/s FiberOptic Receiver

    The integrated clock and data recovery (CDR) circuit is a key element for broad-band optical communication systems at 40 Gbls. We report a 40-Gb/s CDR fabricated in indium-phosphide heteroJunction bipolar transistor (InP HBT) technology using a robust architecture of a phase-locked loop (PLL) with a digital early-late phase detector. The faster InP HBT technology allows the digital phase detector to operate at the full data rate of 40 Gb/s. This, in tum, reduces the circuit complexity (transistor count) and the vollage- eontrolled oscillator (YCO) requirements. The IC includes an on-chip _LC_ VCO, on-chip clock dividers to drive an extemal demultiplexer, and low-frequency PLL control loop and on-chip Umiting amplifier buffers for the data and clock I/O. To our knowledge, this is the first demonstration of a mixed-signal IC operating at the clock rate of 40 GHz. We also describe the chip architecture and measurement results.

  • New Generation of Vertical???Cavity Surface???Emitting Lasers for Optical Interconnects

    This chapter addresses requirements for vertical???cavity surface???emitting lasers (VCSELs), one of the major devices for data communication to meet the bandwidth demand. Single???mode (SM) operation makes it possible to overcome effects related to significant spectral dispersion of the multimode fiber (MMF) standardized for the 840???860nm wavelength range. The leaky VCSEL concept can allow SM operation without any adjustments in the oxide???confined VCSEL technology and does not require sacrificing the basic VCSEL parameters. The chapter investigates oxide???confined, leaky???design VCSELs and observes the characteristic leakage???effect???induced features in the vertical far???field pattern of the device. This observation confirms the validity of the leaky VCSEL concept, allows for better understanding of the device properties such as possible strain and heat gradients, oxide layer tapering, in???plane light scattering, and absorption. The chapter enables the engineering of advanced devices and photonic???integrated circuits with targeted design of oxide apertures or air gaps through quantitative evaluation of the leaky emission.

  • Group IV Alloys for Advanced Nano??? and Optoelectronic Applications

    Mainstream semiconductor technology builds on elements of group IV within the periodic table. Crystalline silicon remains the principal base material, whereas germanium and carbon have entered the mainstream in the embedded source/drain technology, as well as in heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) used in BiCMOS technology. Recently, it has been shown that alloying Ge with Sn enables the fabrication of fundamental direct bandgap group IV semiconductors, as well as optically pumped GeSn lasers grown on Si. This achievement pave the route toward efficient and monolithically integrated group IV light emitters, that is, lasers, for electronic???photonic integrated circuits (EPICs) that could solve the emerging power consumption crisis in complementary metal???oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology by enabling optical on???chip and chip???to???chip data transfer. The large parasitic capacitances introduced by various layers of copper (Cu) interconnects demand high transistor ION currents, which could be reduced if some of the Cu lines are replaced by optical interconnects.

    This monograph is a comprehensive presentation of state-of-the-art methodologies that can dramatically enhance the efficiency of the finite- difference time-domain (FDTD) technique, the most popular electromagnetic field solver of the time-domain form of Maxwell's equations. These methodologies are aimed at optimally tailoring the computational resources needed for the wideband simulation of microwave and optical structures to their geometry, as well as the nature of the field solutions they support. That is achieved by the development of robust "adaptive meshing" approaches, which amount to varying the total number of unknown field quantities in the course of the simulation to adapt to temporally or spatially localized field features. While mesh adaptation is an extremely desirable FDTD feature, known to reduce simulation times by orders of magnitude, it is not always robust. The specific techniques presented in this book are characterized by stability and robustness. T erefore, they are excellent computer analysis and design (CAD) tools. The book starts by introducing the FDTD technique, along with challenges related to its application to the analysis of real-life microwave and optical structures. It then proceeds to developing an adaptive mesh refinement method based on the use of multiresolution analysis and, more specifically, the Haar wavelet basis. Furthermore, a new method to embed a moving adaptive mesh in FDTD, the dynamically adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) FDTD technique, is introduced and explained in detail. To highlight the properties of the theoretical tools developed in the text, a number of applications are presented, including: Microwave integrated circuits (microstrip filters, couplers, spiral inductors, cavities). Optical power splitters, Y-junctions, and couplers Optical ring resonators Nonlinear optical waveguides. Building on first principles of time-domain electromagnetic simulations, this book presents advanced concepts and cu ting-edge modeling techniques in an intuitive way for programmers, engineers, and graduate students. It is designed to provide a solid reference for highly efficient time-domain solvers, employed in a wide range of exciting applications in microwave/millimeter-wave and optical engineering.

  • Specialized Silicon Carbide Devices and Applications

    The unique characteristics of SiC make it attractive for a variety of applications that are not well served by existing silicon technology. One such application is high-power, moderate-frequency microwave amplifiers and power sources based on devices such as MESFETs (metal-semiconductor field-effect transistors), static induction transistors (SITs), and IMPATT (impact ionization avalanche transit-time) diodes. Another important application involves high-temperature integrated circuits for sensing and control, where SiC bipolar and JFET (junction field-effect transistor) integrated circuits are the preferred implementations. A major emerging opportunity for SiC lies in the area of sensors for hostile environments. Developments to date include MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical sensor) devices for motion sensors, gas sensors for combustion control, and solar-blind UV optical detectors. In each area we describe the application requirements, highlight the advantages of SiC, and report the current status of SiC technology.

  • High Sn???Content GeSn Light Emitters for Silicon Photonics

    The present chip technology is based on silicon with increasing number of other materials integrated into electrical circuits. This chapter presents a systematic photoluminescence (PL) study of compressively strained, direct???bandgap GeSn alloys, followed by the analysis of two different optical source designs. First, a direct bandgap GeSn light emitting diode (LED) will be characterized via power???and temperature???dependent electroluminescence (EL) measurements. Then, lasing will be demonstrated in a microdisk (MD) resonator under optical pumping. The integration of direct???bandgap GeSn???based devices as a light source for on???chip communications offers the possibility to monolithically integrate the complete photonic circuit within mainstream silicon technology. The chapter describes material properties using Ge0.875Sn0.125 epilayers of various thicknesses. Temperature???dependent integrated PL intensity is a suitable method to determine whether a semiconductor has a direct or indirect fundamental bandgap. In conclusion, the chapter presents growth and optical characterization of high???quality GeSn alloys with very high Sn content.

  • How Lithography Enables Moore's Law

    Moore's Law sets the pace for the electronics industry, delivering increasing computing capabilities at stable cost. This was driven by the steady pace of the increase of components in an integrated circuit (IC), which has to a large extent been enabled by optical lithography printing increasingly smaller electronic features on a silicon wafer. This chapter quantifies what the contribution of lithography to Moore's Law has been in the past and then discusses the future lithography options to extend Moore's Law into the future. Optical lithography has always been the workhorse for IC manufacturing. The next step for optical lithography is extreme ultraviolet (EUV), which will greatly simplify patterning and thus promises faster yield ramp and lower cost. The alternative patterning techniques, Directed self???assembly (DSA) still needs optical lithography to guide the patterns and should thus be seen as a complementary technology.
