There have been some efforts trying to make active optoelectronic devices, including modulators and switches, on silicon substrates using free-carrier effects[l-2]. Here we report a new optical intensity modulator at 1.3μm which utilizes a Fabry-Perot resonant cavity made possible by silicon-on-insulator technology to achieve a high modulation depth.
