Paper Abstract

A fully packaged and connectorized 1.32 micrometers InGaAsP electroabsorption modulator for analog fiber optic link applications is described. This Franz-Keldysh effect modulator has a 3-dBe bandwidth exceeding 20 GHz, a fiber-to-fiber optical insertion loss of less than 9 dB, and a high modulation efficiency (equivalent switching voltage less than 10 V). A fiber link spurious free dynamic range of greater than 100 dB in a 1 Hz bandwidth is achievable using this modulator, which makes it attractive for Navy shipboard applications.
