Seed Project: Ferroelectric Optical Waveguide Modulator for Silicon Photonics

This seed project aims at transforming the novel ferroelectric materials developed by the Yale MRSEC team to practical use in silicon photonic technology. Specifically, we will develop a high speed, low power, compact electro-optical modulator based on ferroelectric barium titanite thin film epitaxially grown on silicon. The success of this project will enable the integration of an electro-optic modulator on a ubiquitous silicon platform and lead to transformative change in integrated optics.
