ABSTRACT
We report a 1.3-μm GaAs traveling-wave electro-optic waveguide modulator with a 3-dB optical bandwidth in excess of 20 GHz. The bandwidth was determined by directly detecting the modulated optical signal with a high-speed InP/GaInAs photodiode. The modulator has a coplanar strip electrode configuration with a double heterojunction Al0.032Ga0.968As/GaAs/Al0.032Ga0.968As optical guide grown by low-pressure organometallic vapor phase epitaxy.
