Abstract

Disclosed is a method that uses a lithium niobate Mach-Zehnder Interferometer (MZI)-based modulator; this modulator is similar to other Mach-Zehnder devices, however it uses curved or bent waveguides instead of straight waveguides. Benefits include the ability to fit easily into a smaller or differently-shaped transponder.
