An electroabsorption waveguide modulator with an extinction ratio for TE-polarized light at 1550 nm of more than 20 dB for a voltage swing of less than 3 V, and low insertion losses has been realized, which exploits the Wannier-Stark effect in an InGaAs-InP short period superlattice, grown by chemical beam epitaxy. Even for a fixed voltage swing of 2.6 V, a good transmission contrast has been obtained in a wide wavelength range.<>
