Paper Abstract

A guided-wave electrooptic analog-to-digital (A/D) converter is under development for conversion applications in the 4- to 8-bit 50- to 2000-MS/sec range. The operation and design considerations for this device are reviewed. Experimental results on component development are summarized, with emphasis on interferometric modulators with 25-dB extinction ratios, low-loss bends, 4-way single-mode optical power splitters, and 1-GHz Si com-parators and serial-to-parallel converters.
