Acoustic vibrations in integrated electro-optic modulators on substrates of lithium niobate

The processes of the excitation of acoustic vibrations and their influence on the optical signals in integrated electro-optic modulators on substrates of lithium niobate have been investigated. The resonant frequencies of the excitation of substrate vibrational modes have been determined. It has been shown that acoustic vibrations can make a significant contribution to the modulator transfer characteristic at frequencies up to several hundred megahertz, which should be taken into account when using the modulators at low frequencies, for example, as a part of fiber-optic sensors.
