Significant advancements in high-speed lithium niobate modulators have ushered in the age of 10 Gb/s DWDM optical transmission systems. In this paper, the performance characteristics of these integrated optical devices will be discussed with special emphasis on the wavelength dependence of key parameters. The broadband response of lithium niobate makes it well suited for high-speed external modulation, while the well-established properties of this modulator insure that performance is both predictable and reproducible. Also included in this paper will be an assessment of the future use of lithium niobate devices.
