A filter-type coplanar parallel electrode with periodically loaded reactances is introduced to construct guided-wave light modulators of limited bandwidth. The device was built by using a Ti:LiNbO3 optical waveguide and was operated successfully at 633 nm. Measured 3 dB bandwidth was 1 GHz centered at 14.8 GHz. Required modulating power for 1 rad phase modulation was 67.6 mW.
