Abstract
This SBIR effort will develop advanced mode-matching structures for highly efficient electro-optic amplitude modulators in potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP). The intended application for these modulators is in intra-satellite fiber-optic data buses andother satellite communication and data-handling systems. The overall goal of this effort is the fabrication of electro-optic modulators featuring low insertion loss (<1dB), high extinction ratio (>20dB), low half-wave voltage at high bandwidth (<2V at20GHz), and low DC bias voltage (<0.1V). During Phase I the optical performance of individual modulator elements will be measured. Results of these measurements will be used to
