Abstract

We present a detailed look at using Mach-Zehnder modulator generated distortion for identifying the magnitude and relative sign of photodiode generated second order intermodulation distortion (IMD2). Previous discussions introduced the concept for characterizing a test device. Analysis is expanded to IMD2 as a function of voltage, photocurrent and frequency.
