Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A modified conformal mapping method for analyzing traveling-wave modulators in LiNbO3 crystal is presented. In order to improve performances of LiNbO3 electrooptic devices, rigorous studies on the characteristic impedance and the effective dielectric constant are required. This analytical model is suitable for considering the aforementioned electrical properties for LiNbO3 traveling-wave modulators with finite thickness electrodes and a buffer layer. Numerical results are comparied with the available data derived from the mode matching method.
