Abstract

Microwave and optical properties of lithium niobate electrooptic modulators are investigated in this paper. The effect of simultaneous matching of optical and microwave velocities and impedance matching, conductor loss, dielectric loss on the optical bandwidth of an ultra-high-speed lithium niobate modulator are presented here. The metal electrode design, buffer thickness, ridge depth, and the gap between electrodes at different operating frequencies on device performance are thoroughly investigated by using the finite element method.
