Paper Abstract

A promising technique for the design of high speed integrated optical modulators has recently been reported. By employing a coded sequence of phase reversals within the electrode structure, greatly extended bandwidth may be achieved without increase in drive voltage. This paper discusses the theoretical performance of a modulator of the new type and presents preliminary experimental measurements in the 2-18 GHz frequency range. Coded sequence modulators are expected to have considerable significance in specialised microwave optical applications.
