    Traveling-wave Y-fed directional couplers are shown to have a high-frequency bandpass response because of the inherent velocity mismatch between the optical and electrical waves. Furthermore, if their characteristic parameters are suitably chosen, it is possible to achieve an intrinsic resonance...
