Paper Abstract

Progress will be presented regarding circuit elements to be eventually incorporated into a Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC). Data from elements such as phase modulators and couplers will be reviewed. They have been developed employing ridge waveguides in MBE grown GaAs/AlGaAs material structures. A general approach to PICs will be discussed as well as their incorporation into optical frequency translation (OFT) modulation circuits for coherent optical systems. Detailed theoretical discussion of one, two, and four-arm phase-modulator-based OFT circuits is included.
