Design and Modeling of Traveling-Wave Electro-Optic Polymer Modulator for Ultrahigh Speed Applications

We present a complete model and design approach for high speed electro-optic (EO) polymer modulators. A general numerical model for arbitrary travelling-wave EO modulators is built, and the dispersion characteristic of each polymer layer in the device stack is carefully considered and integrated into the model. A velocity compensation layer is added to… CONTINUE READING
