Paper Abstract

An analysis is given of phase reversal electrode structures used for phase matching in travelling-wave integrated optic phase modulators. Both modulus and argument of the phase shift are obtained; both are required for applications involving broadband excitation. Periodic and non-periodic, lossy structures are treated and the advantage of non-periodic structures for wide band operation is demonstrated. Optimum structure arrangements and upper bounds to phase shift and figure of merit are derived.
