All silicon electrooptic devices for modulating and switching of guided light have been developed using the silicon-on-insulator approach. Generally, p-n junctions are formed in a silicon waveguide to selectively modulate and direct light by carrier refraction. An electrooptic phase modulator and several 2 X 2 electrooptic switches are described. The devices are particularly useful for manipulating light signals in the 1.3-1.6 micron range. Patents. rh
