Abstract

Closed-form expressions explicitly relating modulation bandwidth and active length in electro-optic traveling wave modulators are presented which fully account for skin-effect electrode loss and optical-electrical wave velocities mismatch. Four operative margins have been identified where the bandwidth–length trade-off figure of merit takes simple forms.
