Modulation and defelction are two basic functions needed in any optical communication and data transmission systems. High speed modulation may be accomplished through various physical mechanisms, only modulators based on linear electrooptic effects (Pockels effect) and acoustooptic effects are of practical use in the visible and near infrared regions. A brief review of the physical principles and schemes to achieve intensity modulation are presented, leading to the establishment of the basic device parameters. Various integraed electrooptic modulators are discussed.
