Paper Abstract

Single side band (SSB) or suppression carrier (SC) techniques are especially useful in radio on fiber communication systems. These techniques are used to eliminate the effect of the dispersion of the fiber. In this paper, we present a detailed study of a design of a new single side band suppression carrier modulator (SSB-SC) in which the basic element is a Bragg photonic micro cavity. This new scheme is composed of a dual Mach-Zehnder modulator (D-MZM) and a standard Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM). Also, we analyze the feasibility of this integrated modulator with a Silicon on Insulator (SOI) technology. The COMSIS1 optical simulator has been used to analyze the optical operation of the modulator. Macleod one Dimensional (1-D) optical simulator2 is required to calculate the transmission and reflection spectra in the planar Fabry-Perot (F-P) double micro cavity with deep Si/SiO2 Bragg reflectors.
