February 12, Published: The phase of a carrier signal is modulated to follow the changing voltage level amplitude of modulation signal. As far as i know i have used mach-zehnder modulator as a modulator.

We’ve also updated our Privacy Notice. This device is called a Mach-Zehnder modulator. Van der Tol, R. The simplest kind of EOM consists of a crystal, such as lithium niobatewhose refractive index is a function of the strength of the local electric field.

Suitable electronic circuits can switch such large voltages within a few nanoseconds, allowing the use of EOMs as fast optical switches. Polarization modulation in electro-optic crystals can also be used as a technique for time-resolved measurement of unknown electric fields. As far as i know i have used mach-zehnder modulator as a modulator. Since the field inside a parallel plate capacitor depends linearly on the potential, the index of refraction depends linearly on the field for crystals where Pockels effect dominatesand the phase depends linearly on the index of refraction, the phase modulation must depend linearly on the potential modulatof to the EOM.


Van Thourhout, and G. Fanglu Lu, Thai-Truong D. A Pockels cell can thus be seen as a voltage-controlled waveplate, and it can be used for modulating the polarization state.

If a voltage is applied across one of the arms, a phase shift is induced for the wave passing through that arm. About mwch inferometer i dont any concrete idea.

Are they single drive and dual drive mach-Zehnder optixal April 16, at 5: Express 21 6 Thanks for your efforts Regards. Hi Rajguru Mohan, Thank you for the link it was indeed very beneficial for me.

Electro-optic modulator

Click here to learn more. Thank you for the vauable modualtor. I am working with Optisystem for my project. I want to know about Mach Zehnder Modulator and Mach-Zehnder interferometer and what is the basic difference between between using these two. Hi Rajguru, Thank you for your help. Hi Ankita, Thank you.


Difference between Mach-Zehnder Modulator and Mach- Zehnder interferometer

Hi All, I Thank you all for the help. This is a multiphysics model, showing how to combine the Electromagnetic Waves, Beam Envelopes interface with the Electrostatics interface to describe a realistic waveguide device.

Very nice and detailed explanation about the topic… Highly appreciate your efforts… All the best. For a Pockels cell, it is usually hundreds or even thousands of volts, so that a high-voltage amplifier is required.

April 19, at 3: When the two arms are recombined, the phase difference between the two waves is converted to an amplitude modulation.
