An 11-GHz optical modulator using LiTaO3 as the electrooptic material has been designed and built. The experimental model has a bandwidth of about 100 mHz and is tunable over 1.5 GHz with uniform modulation characteristics. A phase modulation index of 0.45 rad was achieved with 1.6 W of modulating power.
