We report a Ge/SiGe quantum well waveguide
electroabsorption modulator that is monolithically integrated
with silicon-on-insulator waveguides. The active quantum well
section is selectively grown on a silicon-on-insulator substrate
and has a footprint of 8 μm2. The integrated device demonstrates
more than 3.2-dB contrast ratio with 1-V direct voltage swing at
3.5 GHz. We also show the potential of this device to operate in
the telecommunication C-band at room temperature.
