Summary: 
A new kind of optical modulator, utilizing a laser diode optical amplifier, which can solve the insertion loss problem for optical modulators, is proposed and demonstrated. Fabricated devices have shown 10 dB fiber to fiber optical gain and 600 MHz modulation bandwidth at 1.55µm wavelength.
