InP/InGaAs-MQW phase shifters with low absorption loss and low electroabsorption loss have been realized. Phase shift efficiency for TE-polarized light at lambda =1.55 mu m was 6.8 degrees V/sup -1/ mm/sup -1/ with negligible absorption loss and at lambda =1.51 mu m the efficiency was 8.9 degrees V/sup -1/ mm/sup -1/ with 5 dB/cm absorption loss
