Low driving voltage and high-speed electro-optic (EO) modulators are of great interest due to their wide variety of applications including broadband communication, RF-photonic links, millimeter wave imaging and phased-array radars. In this paper we propose symmetric design, analysis, and optimization of a novel, high speed and ultra-low driving voltage traveling wave EO modulator based on a dual RF-photonic slot waveguide. Preliminary simulation results demonstrate the DC electro-optic response and half-wavelength voltage-production Vπ-L of 0.1~0.2 V•cm can be achieved for this design. The electro-optic response demonstrates the proposed device is capable of ultra-high speed operation that covers entire RF spectrum.
