Abstract

We report a traveling wave Mach-Zehnder modulator on InP that is compatible with our process for monolithical integration with SOA-based devices like a multi-wavelength laser. The V is lower than 10 V and the static extinction ratio is higher than 20 dB at 1550 nm. Microwave characteristics of the electrical lines were measured up to 40 GHz. The 3-dB bandwidth of 8 GHz allows for 10 Gb/s operation.
