In this work, an ultracompact electro-optic modulator based on refractive index modulation by plasma dispersion effect in PhC all-optical gate (AOG) is proposed. The index modulation is achieved by applying a time-varying bias voltage across the electrical contacts of the AOG. The proposed modulator has potential for high-speed operation, with bandwidths in excess of 30GHz achievable.
