Paper Abstract

In this paper we discuss the design and fabrication of integrated optical Mach Zehnder modulators in LiNb03, with particular emphasis placed on the requirement that these devices can be made commercially available. The particular modulators that we have developed are intended for use at 1.3 µm wavelength which makes them ideally suited to high bit rate communications or signal processing. We will concentrate our attention on three travelling wave modulators designed to operate upto frequencies of 2.5 GHz, 8 GHz and 18 GHz. In addition we include the latest development which is the integration of a 1.3 μm laser and an 18 GHz modulator into a single package to form a compact modulated source of over 1 mW optical output power.
