Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Si and GaAs Mach-Zehnder type light modulators with surface acoustic wave (SAW) excitation are demonstrated. Relative modulation depths of 40% at 950 nm and 5% at 1550 nm in the GaAs and Si samples respectively are achieved at SAW frequency
around 600 MHz. Active area dimensions are down to 20 x 20 mm.
