Abstract

Thin-film lithium-niobate-on-insulator (LNOI) is a very attractive platform for optical interconnect and nonlinear optics. It is essential to enable lithium niobate photonic integrated circuits with low power consumption. Here we present an edge-coupling Mach–Zehnder modulator on the platform with low fiber-chip coupling loss of 0.5 dB/facet, half-wave voltage ${{\boldsymbol V}_{\boldsymbol \pi}}$ of 2.36 V, electro-optic (EO) bandwidth of 60 GHz and an efficient thermal-optic phase shifter with half-wave power of 6.24 mW. In addition, we experimentally demonstrate single-lane 200 Gbit/s data transmission utilizing a discrete multi-tone signal. The LNOI modulator demonstrated here shows great potential in energy-efficient large-capacity optical interconnects.
