Paper Abstract

In order to find the optimal traveling-wave electrode formation for directional-coupler-based polymeric modulators, four electrode structures are evaluated by simulating the modulator's driving voltages and bandwidths, and by experimentally measuring their driving voltages. First, the characteristic parameters of these four structures are analyzed. Then, the driving votlages for modulators using these four structures are computed using beam propagation method, and their bandwidths are obtained using small-signal analysis. Finally modulators are fabricated using DR1/PMMA and CLD1/APC respectively, and their driving voltages for different electode structures are measured.
