High speed directly modulated single mode lasers are becoming important optical components for the short reach communication. On the other hand, Si photonics opens up new opportunities to explore the transceivers for the short reach applications. We have fabricated a heterogeneously integrated DFB laser on a Si photonic circuit as a transmitter. For the receiver, a low voltage Si waveguide-coupled Ge avalanche photodetector has been used. We have successfully demonstrated error free transmission of a 10 Gb/s NRZ-OOK signal over 20 km single mode fiber using a silicon on insulator (SOI) based transmitter and receiver.
