Abstract:   Recently, graphene has been used to build various optical devices, by using its high carrier mobility and high thermal conductivity. In this talk, I will present our works on graphene-based integrated photonic devices, including electro-optic modulators and thermo-optic switches. Firstly, I will show a graphene-silicon hybrid micro-ring modulator and a nanobeam modulator. Such modulators can have a very high modulation speed (tens of GHz) and a high modulation efficiency. Then, I will talk about an all-optical graphene-Si3N4 switchA response time constant of 253.0 ns and a switching energy of ~50 nJ are obtained. Finally, I will show a tunable optical filter/switch based on a nanobeam resonator. In this switch, a tuning efficiency of ~1.5 nm/mW is achieved by using a graphene micro-heater.
