A Research for Broadband Modeling Method of Electro-Absorption Modulator
This paper improves the broadband equivalent circuit model (ECM) modeling method of Electro-absorption Modulator. According to the principle of Circuit Partitioning Simplified, the series form of the original increased frequency impedance model is transformed into the parallel form. The result shows that the new method eliminates the process of the impedance type verification, will not introduce new nodes, and reduces the computation. After testing, the maximum relative error of this model to fit measurement data is only 0.693%. This method’s simulation results are consistent with the test data of ECM better in 0-8GHz frequency range.
