Compact optical microfiber phase modulator

Zhang, Xueliang, Belal, M., Chen, G.Y., Song, Zhangqi, Brambilla, G. and Newson, T.P. (2012) Compact optical microfiber phase modulator Optics Letters, 37, (3), pp. 320-322. (doi:10.1364/OL.37.000320).

Record type: Article


A compact optical microfiber phase modulator with MHz bandwidth is presented. A micrometer-diameter microfiber is wound on a millimeter-diameter piezoelectric ceramic rod with two electrodes. When a voltage is applied to the piezoelectric ceramic, the rod is strained, leading to a phase change along the microfiber; because of the small size, the optical microfiber phase modulator can have as high as a few MHz bandwidth response.
