  • Publication number: 20210296850
    Abstract: A method for increasing the bandwidth of an electroabsorption modulator (EAM) includes the following steps. First, a plurality of p-i-n active waveguides for the EAM are defined on a p-i-n optical waveguide forming an EAM having a shorter p-i-n active waveguide length. Then, the bandwidth of the EAM can be increased. Second, the high-impedance transmission lines are used in series to connect the EAM sections to reduce the microwave reflection and then increase the device bandwidth. Finally, the impedance-controlled transmission lines for the signal input and output can not only reduce the parasitic effects resulting from packaging, but also reduce the microwave reflection resulting from the impedance mismatch at the device input and load.

  • Publication number: 20210201901
    Abstract: The present invention is an action agent architecture in a scalable multi-service virtual assistant platform that can construct a fluid and dynamic dialogue by assembling responses to end user utterances from two kinds of agents, information agents and action agents. A plurality of information agents obtain at least one information value from a parsed user input and/or contextual data. A plurality of action agents perform two or more actions in response to the parsed user input, the contextual data, and/or an information value obtained from at least one of the information agents. The plurality of action agents are configured by specifying one or more triggering conditions, one or more action invocation parameters, one or more information agents as pre-requisites, and one or more responses. A natural language generation (NLG) module renders a response back to the user after the two or more actions are performed.
