Silicon-on-insulator (SOI) is considered a viable platform for low-cost highly integrated photonic circuits. Silicon-organic hybrid (SOH) integration combines silicon chips with organic materials that have tailored optical properties, thereby adding new functionalities to the SOI platform with application fields ranging from communications to metrology and sensing. We give an overview on our recent progress in the field of SOH integration, comprising high-speed electro-optic modulators with fJ/bit energy consumption, frequency comb generators for high-speed , and integrated frequency shifters.
