Peter De Dobbelaere received the Ph.D. degree in integrated optics from the University of Gent, Belgium in 1995. From 1991 to 1995 he was employed by IMEC. From 1995 to 1999, he was with Akzo-Nobel N.V., The Netherlands and U.S.A., where he was engaged in development of polymer-based photonic ICs. In 1999, he joined OMM Inc., San Diego, CA, where he was responsible for product and technology development of MEMS-based optical switches. In 2004, he joined Luxtera, Inc., Carlsbad, CA, where he was responsible for technology and product development for silicon photonics based transceiver products. In 2019 Luxtera Inc. was acquired by Cisco Systems Inc. where he now continues his work as Cisco Fellow in the Client Optics Group.
We will discuss key aspects of silicon photonics based optical transceivers for data rates of 100 Gbit/s per lane. This will include technology platforms as well as MCM and optical design. We will show transmission test results up to 20 km over single mode fiber.
