As the transistor’s feature scales down and the integration density of the monolithic circuit increases continuously, the traditional metal interconnects face significant performance limitation to meet the stringent demands of high-speed, low-power and low-latency data transmission for on- and off-chip communications. Optical technology is poised to resolve these problems. Due to the complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) compatible process, silicon photonics is the leading candidate technology. Silicon photonic devices and networks have been improved dramatically in recent years, with a notable increase in bandwidth from the megahertz to the multi-gigahertz regime in just over half a decade. This paper reviews the recent developments in silicon photonics for optical interconnects and summarizes the work of our laboratory in this research field.
