For band-type operations such as radio-on-fiber systems, effective optical modulation can be obtained by using resonant structures. In this paper, we propose a resonant-type optical modulator consisting of a simple planar structure, whose modulation efficiency is larger than that of conventional modulators. The normalized induced phase of the fabricated modulator has a peak of 3.41 at 10 GHz, and the half wave voltage is 13.7V, while the length of the modulating electrode is 3.25mm.
