The optical response for traveling-wave Mach-Zehnder modulators without-with phased reversal is successfully derived in more concise and succinct form than any other equations before. The obtained equation is applied to a bandpass traveling-wave modulator with 3-section phase reversal and is confirmed to be in reasonable agreement with the experimental data.
