Paper Abstract

The results of the development and investigation of the modulation characteristics of a coaxial liquid crystal modulator are presented. The active part of the modulator under investigation is implemented on the basis of a 'cylindrical geometry'. Specific design solutions of such a coaxial modulator are considered. It is shown that in the case under study the modulation depth increases 2 or 3-fold as compared with conventional LC modulators and exceeds 50 percent, noise level becoming lower.
