Paper Abstract

The use of III-V semiconductor heterojunction and quantum well optical modulators is considered for monitoring of shipboard radar and communication emissions. Both antenna- coupled and all-dielectric electro-optic electromagnetic environment monitoring systems are investigated with respect to sensitivity, linear dynamic range, and system bandwidth at optical wavelengths of 1.3 and 1.5 micrometers . Results are presented which indicate that these devices can, if carefully designed and utilized, be a useful alternative to interferometric modulators for this ultra-wideband analog fiberoptic application.
