To achieve simultaneous wavelength conversion and amplitude modulation, we electro-optically modulated a dispersion lithium niobate section in two PPLN sections for a linear-cascaded configuration and a folding-crystal configuration. The performance is compared with an electrode-coated asymmetric-duty-cycle PPLN amplitude modulator.
