Ultra-wideband GCPW-MS-GCPW driven electrode for low-cost and wide range application electro-optic modulators

Abstract : Electro-optic modulators are key components in high bit-rate optical transmissions. Decreasing the manufacturing cost without damage on performances is one of the most challenging issues for such components. We demonstrate that the electro-optic modulators based on polymer are compatible with high bandwidth requirements. Indeed, according to the results obtained by numerical simulation and partly validated by experiments, with the via-free GCPW-MS-GCPW electrodes proposed and analyzed in this article, the (400 MHz–67 GHz) bandwidth is achievable with electro-optic modulators based on suitable polymers. These encouraging results are very useful for low-cost mass production of polymer-based electro-optic modulators for a wide range of applications: digital and analogue high bit-rate transmissions.
