Abstract

Modulation is demonstrated at 84, 111, 139, and 165 GHz resonances of a traveling-wave electrooptic polymer ringresonator-based modulator. The modulation response is characterized throughout the W-band, illustrating the resonant response at 84 and 111 GHz. A traveling-wave analysis that includes the compound effect of microwave loss and optical/microwave velocity mismatch in a ring-resonator-based modulator is presented and shows a good agreement with experimental results. The ring modulator shows superior performance compared to the Mach-Zehnder modulator in the presence of these limitations when both structures have the same equivalent low-frequency Vπ.
