Dear Sir,
I was looking into the details of Electroabsorption modulator in component library document, there I found a graph between change in voltage vs absorption and alpha-parameter. I could not get how to calculate the alpha parameter since reference article is also not mentioned in the document. I also would like to request kindly share the .dat file of this graph, since in OptiSystem V 13, file is not given. I would like to thanks for sharing .dat file regarding Mach-Zehnder modulator measured.
Thanking you.
With regards,

      Hello,
      The alpha sub m parameter is a measured parameter that can be loaded to the EAM Modulator Measured component. Users needs to provide the data. However, default data of the shown curve in the datasheet can be provided upon request by email to ahmad.atieh@optiwave.com
