Paper Abstract

This paper describes the performance of a travelling wave electroded, Ti-indiffused LiNbO3 phase modulator, pigtailed with polarisation maintaining fibres. A rugged high frequency package enables the device to withstand shock, vibrations, acceleration and temperature cycling without compromising the performance. A Vπ of 8 volts at dc and 3dB modulation bandwidth of 4GHz is reported. The measured optical insertion loss for the fibre-pigtailed device - fibre is 3.5 ± 0.5dB.
