Paper Abstract

Wideband modulators based on nonlinear optical (NLO) organic polymers are reviewed with particular attention given to the material properties, design guidelines, fabrication, and performance. Improvements in the efficiency of NLO polymers make it possible to significantly improve the performance of electrooptic devices. Major parameters to be considered for wideband modulator design include characteristic impedance, microwave and optical losses, and RF drive power as related to switching voltage efficiency.
