Quantum well heterostructures provide enhanced electrooptic effects that allow waveguide modulators with both low drive voltage requirements and small physical footprint. Compactness is important for incorporation in systems where space is at a premium or weight is an issue. Minimizing waveguide device length is also a critical factor in reducing production cost, especially when the modulator is monolithically integrated with other components for higher functionality. Finally, for electrorefractive waveguide modulators that are RC-limited, compactness is the key to obtaining high speed operation.
