Abstract:

Over the third year of the grant, our research program in active plasmonics has concentrated on developing ultracompact all-optical and electro-optic modulators based on metal-insulator-metal Fabry-Perot resonators. Highlights over the past year include Realization of tunable color filter pixels based on plasmonic metal-insulator-metal waveguides and Demonstration of a plasMOStor, a Si CMOS plasmonic electro-optic modulator. Another significant development was the collaborative work with Yariv and Scherer groups at Caltech of an electrically pumped hybrid evanescent SiInGaAsP laser. Diest and Atwater developed the InPSi bonding technology needed to realize active electrically pumped InP-based lasers on Si.
