Paper Abstract

A novel structure for an electro-optic (e-o) polymer based Mach-Zehnder modulator is proposed and its anticipated device performance is detailed. The modulator is designed using commercially available materials and makes usc of wellcharacterized electrical and optical structures. The modulator is designed to be competitive with the pertrmance of LiNbO based modulators. The results of the analysis predict a bandwidth of 20 GHz, V of 8-10 V, optical insertion loss of S d13, and a contrast ratio of approximately 13 dB.
