Paper Abstract

In this paper, a compact optical modulator using negative refractive material slow-wave waveguide is proposed. The finite element method (FEM) has been employed to analysis the performances of the novel modulator. The results show that the size of the novel optical modulator has low power consumption, compact size, easy fabrication, and the cost. Its dimension is only 40μm-long. The size of the novel optical modulator is 100 times shorter than that of the conventional lithium niobate optical modulator. It has a potential application for future optical communication systems.
