Abstract
Electrooptical modulators are key elements in today's optical telecommunication systems [1] and provide a wide range of applications in parallel optical signal processing [2] and microwave optoelectronics. Because of their low capacitance planar metal-semiconductor-metal (MSM) structures are well suited for applications at very high frequencies that hardly can be realized using conventional pn-devices. MSMphotodetectors have been reported exceeding frequency limits of 100 GHz [3]. Similar results are expected for planar reflection modulators.
