Title (EN) AN INTEGRATED OPTICAL MODULATOR
(FR) MODULATEUR OPTIQUE INTEGRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An integrated optical modulator comprising: an insulating substrate (14); an insulating ridge extending upwardly from the substrate (14), the ridge comprising an electrically conducting layer (16) within the ridge above the substrate (14); an optical waveguide (18, 19) positioned on the ridge and extending down through the ridge to the conducting layer (16); an electrical contact (24, 25) on the optical waveguide; a travelling wave electrode (20, 21) on the upper surface of the substrate (14); and, an electrically conducting air-bridge (22, 23) extending from the electrical contact (24, 25) to the travelling wave electrode (20, 21) .
(FR)L'invention concerne un modulateur optique intégré comprenant les éléments suivants : un substrat isolant (14) ; une crête isolante s'étendant vers le haut à partir du substrat (14), la crête intégrant en son sein une couche électroconductrice (16) au-dessus du substrat (14) ; un guide d'ondes optiques (18, 19) placé sur la crête et pénétrant dans celle-ci jusqu'à la couche conductrice (16) ; un contact électrique (24, 25) disposé sur le guide d'ondes optiques ; une électrode d'ondes progressives (20, 21) disposée sur la surface supérieure du substrat (14) ; et un pont aérien électroconducteur (22, 23) connectant le contact électrique (24, 25) à l'électrode d'ondes progressives (20, 21).
