Single side-band (SSB) technologies are especially useful in optical fiber communication systems, such as higher density wavelength multiplexing and long-haul fiber transmission due to less nonlinear optical effects, because of the reduced optical power. This letter reports on the SSB modulation performance of a LiNbO/sub 3/ integrated modulator consisting of four phase modulator waveguides. Optical SSB modulation with suppressions of main carrier (-22.6 dB) and J/sub 3/ subcarrier (-18.4 dB) of a 10-GHz single-tone signal with a driving voltage of 6.3 V/sub p-p/ was demonstrated. The total insertion loss was 10.6 dB.
