Abstract

In this work we investigate a module of the electro-absorption modulator (EAM) and ways to improve the electrical response in order to increase its bandwidth. Starting from the empirical model of the modulator, we utilize the combination of the termination load placement and design of the transmission line on the alumina in order to improve the bandwidth. The EAM is designed on InP platform on n-substrate for further use in monolithic integrated photonic circuits for transmitters in optical telecommunications.
