linb3o The measured tuning efficiency is 7. Express 26 23 The light blue region indicates the waveguiding core in each circumstance. Shallow rib waveguides are utilized for guiding a single transverse electric TE optical modularor, and Au coplanar waveguides CPWs support the modulating radio frequency RF mode. Alert me when this article is cited. The fabricated modulator possesses a tightly confined optical mode, which lends itself to a strong interaction between the modulating RF field and the guided optical carrier; resulting in a measured DC half-wave voltage of 3.
