Abstract:
We report on an analytical model for monitoring the bias condition of Silicon IQ modulators. Based on measured phase modulator behavior, ohmic heaters and modulator transfer functions, transmitter performance investigation is attained versus applied bias voltages. We underline error vector magnitude and quadrature error as appropriate metrics for quality measurements of Silicon coherent transmitters.
