ABSTRACT
An optical electroabsorption waveguide modulator is described based on the quantum-confined Stark effect in an InGaAs/InP multiple quantum well waveguide. The optical modulator has a high on/off ratio (47:1) with very low insertion loss (2.9 dB) and a 3-dB modulation bandwidth of 3.0 GHz at 0.1 mW optical input power.
