AMO Demonstrates Ultrafast Graphene-based Photodetectors With Data Rates up to 50 GBit/s
Graphene, a two-dimensional layer of carbon atoms, is currently one of the most promising materials for future ultrafast and compact telecommunication systems. With a very high charge-carrier mobility and a broadband electro-optical response it can be integrated in large-scale silicon based systems. In the current work Graphene based photodetectors were integrated in a conventional silicon photonic platform, designed for future on-chip applications in the area of ultrafast data communication. In addition the specific features of Graphene-based photodetectors like dark current free and high speed operation and the CMOS-compatible large scale integration could be utilized.
