Paper Abstract

A single sideband suppressed-carrier (SSB-SC) optical modulator is demonstrated. The sideband is suppressed by means of a fiber Mach-Zehnder interferometer with amplitude electro-optical modulators in each branch. The attenuation of the carrier is achieved by proper biasing of the integrated modulators. The proposal was demonstrated by modulating at 285 MHz. Suppression of 30.8 dB in the carrier and 26.3 dB in the sideband were obtained.
