Abstract

By careful electrode design we have achieved a 1.7-GHz modulation bandwidth for a Ti:LiNbO3 integrated-optic TE ↔ TM mode-converter modulator. Because of the wavelength selectivity of this modulator, it is an attractive device for simultaneously providing multiplexing and signal encoding in future wavelength-multiplexed single-mode light-wave systems.
