Paper Abstract

We have fabricated Mach Zehnder type amplitude modulators with performance levels suitable for CATV industry. Fiber to fiber insertion loss with polarization preserving fibers of 45 dB has been achieved. We present detailed measurements of the sources of loss: mode mismatch loss in the Y junctions loss due to angled ends and Fresnel loss.
