Abstract

It is shown that the bandwidth of a traveling-wave electro-optical modulator can be greatly increased by matching of the group velocities of the optical and rf waves in the waveguides with cascaded Bragg gratings. A LiNbO>3 Mach–Zehnder modulator with 1-V half-wave voltage and a bandwidth in excess of 100 GHz is proposed and its performance evaluated.
