The effects of temperature, and operating signal wavelength on high frequency radio frequency transmission characteristics are deeply investigated against various materials based electro optic modulator devices such as Lithium Niobate (LiNbO3), polymer, and semiconductor materials. On the other hand, the authors have developed the optimization of the electro optic modulator parameters where the effective index plays an essential role in the evaluation of the bandwidth structure. The effects of design parameters on the modulating voltage and optical bandwidth are also investigated for different materials based electro optic modulators by using rigorous transmission modeling techniques.
