Paper Abstract

Lithium niobate electro-optic waveguide frequency translators suitable for use in coherent optical fibre systems are reviewed. The design of double sideband Mach-Zehnder interferometric Y junction frequency translators is discussed and the fabrication and operational tolerances of these devices considered. The continuous generation of frequency translated optical signals with frequency translations upto 6.5 GHz at a wavelength of 1.52 μm are reported and the experimental results compared with theoretical predictions.
