Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Packaged low polarisation sensitivity InGaAs/InAlAs MQW electroabsorption modulators employing a novel ridged deeply etched buried heterostructure design are described. The feasibility of using them in 160Gbit/s OTDM systems is experimentally assessed.
