Paper Abstract

This paper describes integrated optics modulators which meet the requirements introduced by hybrid fiber coax system architectures, and the design criteria and performance data for both the devices and externally modulated systems. Advantages associated with external modulators include high power operation, chirpless operation at 1550 nm, compatibility with optical amplifiers, optimal performance for the distribution of analog signals to optical distribution nodes from head ends/central offices, integral means for SBS suppression, flat frequency and phase response to 1 GHz, high impedance (50 ohm) operation, and stable operating characteristics over a range of environmental conditions.
