PD10–Statistical Analysis of Nonlinear Harmonic Distortions in Single Drive Mach Zhender Modulators

Alzoubi S., Shehata M.

In this preliminary investigation, a statistical approach is proposed to analyze the nonlinear harmonic distortions introduced by Mach-Zehnder modulators (MZMs) in response to arbitrarily random radio frequency (RF) excitation signals. The proposed analysis is based on a simple and accurate reformulation of the MZM transfer characteristics using the Taylor series expansion and the Binomial Theorem. […]
