Study of an electro-optic modulator capable of generating simultaneous amplitude and phase modulations

Cusack, Benedict J; Sheard, Benjamin S; Shaddock, Daniel A; Gray, Malcolm B; Lam, Ping Koy; Whitcomb, Stanley Ernest


We report on the analysis and prototype-characterization of a dual-electrode electro-optic modulator that can generate both amplitude and phase modulations with a selectable relative phase, termed a universally tunable modulator (UTM). All modulation states can be reached by tuning only the electrical inputs, facilitating real-time tuning, and the device is shown to have good suppression and stability properties. A mathematical analysis is presented, including the development of a...[Show more]
