Title (EN) OPTICAL ENGINE FOR POINT-TO-POINT COMMUNICATIONS
(FR) MOTEUR OPTIQUE POUR COMMUNICATIONS POINT À POINT
Abstract:
(EN) An optical engine (11) for providing a point-to-point optical communications link between devices. The optical engine (11) includes a light source (24) optically coupled to a modulation chip (6) and configured to generate an optical beam. The optical engine further comprises a modulator (21) carried on the modulation chip and configured to modulate the optical beam. The optical engine further includes a waveguide (30), formed in a plane parallel to the plane of the substrate, and configured to guide the modulated optical beam from the modulator to at least one of a plurality of out-of-plane couplers (40) grouped in a defined region (48) of the modulation chip. The out-of-plane coupler can couple the modulated optical beam to an optical device.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un moteur optique (11) permettant d’assurer une liaison de communications optiques point à point entre des dispositifs. Le moteur optique (11) comprend une source de lumière (24) couplée optiquement à une puce de modulation (6) et conçue pour générer un faisceau optique. Le moteur optique comprend en outre un modulateur (21) porté sur la puce de modulation et conçu pour moduler le faisceau optique. Le moteur optique comprend en outre un guide d’onde (30) formé dans un plan parallèle au plan du substrat et conçu pour guider le faisceau optique modulé à partir du modulateur vers au moins un coupleur d’une pluralité de coupleurs hors du plan (40) groupé dans une région définie (48) de la puce de modulation. Le coupleur hors du plan peut coupler le faisceau optique modulé à un dispositif optique.
