Hi Ankita, Thank you. April 15, at 7: Views Read Edit View history. One of the applications I came through recently is of Sagnac fiber interferometers which can be employed for sensing nonreciprocal and timevarying phenomena. The electro-optic effect is the change in the refractive index of a material resulting from the application of a DC or low-frequency electric field. The phase of a carrier signal is modulated to follow the changing voltage level amplitude of modulation signal.

Notice that if one modulates the amplitude instead of the phase, one gets only the first set of sidebands.
Modulation bandwidths extending into the gigahertz range are possible with the use of laser -controlled modulators. Hi Nagesh, I agree with the forum members on this particularly Rajguru about the fact that Mach-Zehnder modulator is used to control the amplitude of an optical wave which is given to it whereas interferometer is used as beam splitters to split and recombine the beams.
The phase of a carrier signal is modulated to follow the changing voltage level amplitude of modulation signal. I came across some very important points. But the phase of the light leaving the crystal is directly proportional to the length of time it takes that light to pass through it.
Articles lacking in-text citations from October All articles lacking in-text citations CS1 maint: For a Pockels cell, it is usually hundreds or even thousands of volts, so that a high-voltage amplifier is required. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled morulator components from the following product combinations:.
Since the field inside a parallel plate capacitor depends linearly on the potential, the index of refraction depends linearly on the field for crystals where Pockels opticsl dominatesand the phase depends linearly on the index of refraction, the phase modulation must depend linearly on the potential applied to the EOM.
Thanking you in advance. Equations displayed with MathJax. When the two arms are recombined, the phase difference between the two waves is converted to an amplitude modulation. If you require urgent assistance, please contact Customer Service. You can fix this by pressing ‘F12’ on your keyboard, Selecting ‘Document Mode’ and choosing ‘standards’ or the latest version listed if standards is not an option.
When the two arms are recombined, the phase difference between the two waves is converted to an amplitude modulation. Try the link below…. Van Thourhout, and G. April 15, at 1: Optiacl mach-zenhnder inferometer i dont any concrete idea.
The optical path mosulator in both arms may be identical or may be different. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Please login to set citation alerts. The beams are then recombined.

April 14, at 2: The is basic difference between the two. April 14, at 4: Thanks for your efforts Regards. This adds a time dependent phase to the above expression. Click here to see what’s new. Hi Nagesh, You are welcome any time… Hope your query gets resolved…. This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:.
