Abstract
We investigated the application of integrated optic modulators (I0Ms) to wideband fiber optic communications systems. These integrated optic modulators differed in their electrode structures and method of optical launching. Signal-to-noise ratio, harmonic distortion, input impedance, and laser noise effects were measured as functions of modulation frequency and modulator bias voltage. We will present possible system design alternatives to improve operation of the IOM and performance of the overall fiber optic link.
