Research Institution
Lithium Niobate electro-optic modulators with improved efficiency achieved via novel device geometrical configurations. The objective on the proposed work is on the development of LiNbO3 modulators designs with novel device geometries to achieve low Vpi and low optical loss performance beyond the current sate-of-the-art. The modulator design is compatible with modulation bandwidths to Ka band. The effort will address all aspects of device fabrication, and justify the feasibility/practicality of the approach. The proposed approach will be focusing on practical implementation leading to a relatively low-cost, high-yield manufacturing process.
