Active stabilisation of single drive dual-parallel Mach-Zehnder modulator for single sideband signal generation


Presented is a study on a single-drive dual-parallel Mach-Zehnder modulator implementation as a single sideband suppressed carrier generator. High values of both extinction ratio and sidemode suppression ratio were obtained at different modulation frequencies over the Cband. In addition, a stabilisation loop had been developed to preserve the single sideband generation over time.
