We investigate the growth and optical characterization of Ge/SiGe quantum wells on silicon substrate to exploit its strong quantum-confined Stark effect (QCSE) for electroabsorption modulator in long wavelength regime. Further, we design and fabricate devices based on this approach and investigate the high-speed modulation performance of the device.
