A reciprocating optical modulator consisting of two optical filters and an optical phase modulator that has a resonant electrode to enhance modulation efficiency at a particular frequency is proposed. Lightwave reciprocates in the modulator, where the optical phase modulator placed between the two optical filters acts both on forward and backward lightwaves.
