Paper Abstract

Recent progress in LiNbO3 based high-speed external optical modulators is reviewed. Techniques to achieve broadband performance, such as, microwave-optical velocity matching, and elimination of coupling to dielectric substrate modes are addressed. The performance of different devices are compared by employing a frequency dependent half-wave switching voltage.
