Paper Abstract

Modulation diagrams of various integrated-optics coupled-waveguide interferometers and directional couplers are presented. The diagrams display contour maps of various normalized optical output power levels of the modulators. The diagrams are used to describe graphically the modulation depth characteristics of modulators and the crosstalk characteristics of integrated-optics switches as functions of the interaction length and the applied voltage. Various modulation diagrams are constructed to analyze the behaviors of both the conventional and the nonideal / non-conventional coupled-waveguide structures.
