Description

The optical ring modulator presented here is a vertical junction resonant
microring/disk modulator which can achieve high modulation speed, lower
power consumption, and compact size. The MIT virtual source model is a semi-empirical model describing the current and
voltage characteristics of a short-channel metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effecttransistor
(MOSFET), where the current and charges are functions of its terminal
voltage. In this release, we apply MIT virtual source model in the driver circuits of Optical Ring Modulators.
