Abstract
The TLM method is used to characterise microwave parameters of two different types of the modulator, namely the lumped and the travelling wave modulator. The modulators are compared in terms of their characteristic impedance, effective refractive indices, capacitance and microwave loss. Furthermore, the impact of the electrode size, semiconductor mesa and finite metal conductivity on the microwave characteristics of modulators is investigated and compared for two different types of modulators.
