Title: Electro-optical modulator based on a layered semiconductor crystal structure
Description: The invention provides an electro-optical modulator having: a mono-or multi-layered film of 2-dimensional semiconducting material having a layered crystal structure; and electrodes formed at each side of the semiconducting material, wherein the application of electrical potential to said electrodes and across said semiconducting material modulates the transmittance of light of certain wavelengths as a function of the voltage. Integrated photonic circuits and optical devices having such modulators are also provided.
