1 September 1996 Novel electro-optic modulator that can generate tetrahertz-width sidebands

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