Amplitude Optical Modulators

Stand 466

29th March 2023

Lithium niobate (LiNbO3) intensity modulators are designed for modulation frequencies larger than 30GHz.  The X-cut design of the Mach-Zehnder modulators provides an unmatched stability in a wide range of operational conditions plus zero chirp performance.  Exail’s proprietary waveguide design offers low insertion loss with a high contrast.

Key features • low insertion loss • high bandwidth • zero chirp • low driving voltage • high second harmonic rejection

Applications include digital modulation NRZ, RZ, DPSK, duo binary modulation formats, up to 44Gb/s-NRZ, QPSK-56Gb/s and analogue modulation up to 40GHz.
