Paper Abstract

A high-speed integrated-optic Ti:LiNbO, modulator has been developed. The modulator exhibits smooth resonance-free frequency r6sponse with a 17-GHz 3-dB bandwidth. Complete intensity modulation can be achieved with 120 mW drive power. Optical damage effects, including optically-induced loss, polarization rotation, modulation transfer characteristic shifts, and mode pattern changes in these devices were also investigated.
