Paper Abstract

We report the description of a new kind of Mach-Zehnder interferometers integrated in lithium niobate (LiNbO3), which can be used for sensor applications and coherence multiplexing transmission systems. These modulators are designed to introduce large optical delays, of some tens to some hundreds of micrometers. The orientation of the waveguides, parallel to the Z-axis of LiNbO3, allows a quasi-polarization independent behavior.
