Abstract
We present standard and radiation-hardened pn depletion-type Mach-Zehnder modulators (MZM) to be used in high-bandwidth, fully-integrated wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) transmitter designs, aiming to upgrade the optical data transmission of future detector systems. A detailed characterization of the modulators with respect to modulation efficiency and RF response was carried out. Based on this work, a first optical link with a data rate of 11.3 Gb/s was set up.
