The performance of the TW-MZM also depends on the matching between the effective index of the optical waveguide and the electrical transmission line. A similar analysis using OptSim Circuit would show that ideal matching results in nearly infinite bandwidth while even a small mismatch (say, 10%) can adversely affect the performance.
