Paper Abstract

Three new EOM structures are proposed for high efficiency nonlinearity compensation. A 30 dBc reduction in the 3rd order IMP is achieved at the expenses of 2.9X driving voltage increasing in the first approach. The second approach provides a theoretically total cancellation on the 2nd and 3rd order IMP at the expense of 2.8X driving voltage increasing. A 50 dBc reduction of 3rd order IMP is obtained, and a less than 100 dBc 2nd order IMP is achieved in the third approach at the expense of 1.6X driving voltage increasing. The sensitivity of the structure design parameters is also studied and discussed.
