Abstract : This contract was designated for the development of technologies necessary to demonstrate hundred-gigahertz modulation of optical signals. Techniques are presented for eliminating velocity mismatch and model dispersion, which are the primary limitations on state-of-the-art modulators. Problems of interconnects and test instrumentation are treated and some additional work with related materials is discussed.
