Paper Abstract

The dependence of electroabsorption and electrorefraction in InGaAs/InP multiple-quantum- well (MQW) structures on the MQW parameter (as P mole fraction y, well thickness Lz, residual impurity concentration Ndj in i region, and interface quality) and on the applied electric field is investigated theoretically. The relationship between the performance of a MQW long-wavelength phase modulator and electro-refraction is also investigated. Our theoretical study shows that the In1-xGaxAsyP1-y/InP MQW structure with y equals 0.9, Lz equals 100 angstrom is appropriate for a intensity modulator and the structure with y equals 0.87, Lz equals 140 angstrom is suitable for a phase modulator. High interface quality and low i region residual impurity concentration are in favor of the fast and efficient MQW modulators.
