Characterization of the First Field-Deployed 15-Mode Fiber Cable for High Density Space-Division Multiplexing (Th3B.1)
Presenter: Georg Rademacher, National Inst of Information & Comm Tech

We characterize the first field-deployed 15-mode fiber cable. We evaluate differential mode delay and mode dependent loss over 2 distances of 6km and 48km. Both quantities are sufficiently low to confirm field-usability of the fiber cable.

Thermally Stable Silicon-Organic Hybrid (SOH) Mach-Zehnder Modulator for 140 GBd PAM4 Transmission With Sub-1 v Drive Signals (Th3B.2)
Presenter: Carsten Eschenbaum, Karlsruhe Inst Tech (KIT)

We demonstrate a silicon-organic hybrid (SOH) slot-waveguide modulator that is based on a temperature-stable organic electro-optic material. The 750 µm-long device features a UπL product below 0.5 Vmm and permits PAM4 transmission at symbol rates (line rates) of 130 GBd (260 Gbit/s) with sub-1V drive signals.

Cryogenic Operation of a Silicon-Organic Hybrid (SOH) Modulator at 50 Gbit/s and 4 K Ambient Temperature (Th3B.3)
Presenter: Adrian Schwarzenberger, Karlsruher Institut fur Technologie

We demonstrate cryogenic operation of a silicon-organic hybrid (SOH) Mach-Zehnder modulator. The device is based on a dedicated material formulation and allows for 50 Gbit/s on-off-keying (OOK) at 4 K - a record-high line rate generated by an MZM at this temperature.

Low-Loss Plasmonically Enhanced Graphene-Organic Hybrid Phase Modulator With >270 GHz Modulation Bandwidth (Th3B.4)
Presenter: Juerg Leuthold, Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule Zurich

A plasmonically enhanced graphene organic hybrid electro-optic phase modulator of 10 μm length with low plasmonic losses of 2.5 dB and a bandwidth of 270 GHz and beyond is demonstrated. The device is verified for high-speed on-off-keying data modulation at a line rate of 140 Gbit/s.

>500 GHz Bandwidth Graphene Photodetector Enabling Highest-Capacity Plasmonic-to-Plasmonic Links (Th3B.5)
Presenter: Stefan Koepfli, Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule Zurich

A novel vertical incidence metamaterial enhanced graphene photodetector featuring a 200 nm spectral window and a setup limited bandwidth of 500 GHz is demonstrated. The photodetector has been tested for data transmission in an all plasmonic EOE-link offering unprecedented 250 GHz bandwidth.
