Paper Abstract

A model for a multiple quantum well electroabsorption modulator is developed based on measurements of the escape time of photogenerated carriers, the dependence of the fiber-to-fiber loss on the applied voltage, the dependence of the α-parameter of the modulated signal on the applied voltage, and the intensity modulation frequency response. The accuracy and computational efficiency of the model in describing the intensity and phase modulation properties of optical signal make it suitable for computer simulations aimed at system design and performance evaluation.
