Abstract
A new structure electrooptic modulator is designed and constructed. It is suitable for deep modulation at high frequency and can be used to generate ultrawide sideband signals for forming ultrashort optical pulses. In experiments, phase modulation with a modulation index of 57 rad has been successfully obtained at 16.25 GHz, and thereby optical sidebands extending over as wide as 1.85 THz have been attained. The sidebands produced are broad enough to form subpicosecond pulses using the chirping-compression method.
