We report on high-speed multilevel signal generation and arbitrary pulse shaping with silicon-organic hybrid (SOH) Mach-Zehnder Interferometer (MZI) modulators. Pure phase modulation exploiting the linear electro-optic effect allows the generation of multiple modulations formats at highest speed such as 40 Gbit/s OOK and BPSK and 28 Gbd 4-ASK and 8-ASK with data rates up to 84 Gbit/s. Additionally, beside NRZ pulse-shaping, for the first time Nyquist pulse shaping with silicon modulators is demonstrated to enable multiplexing at highest spectral efficiency.
