Paper Abstract

We perform double sideband and single sideband suppressed- carrier modulators using a Mach-Zehnder interferometer in free space. Two bulk LiNbO3 crystals are used to modulate the optical beam at 1319 nm in both branches of the interferometer. We present experimental results of the optical spectrum using heterodyne measurement technique. These results show maximum carrier and sideband suppression of 24 dB and 12 dB respectively for 1 GHz modulation frequency.
