Abstract

We report initial experiments on the fabrication of active and passiveintegrated optic device structures based on poled polymer electro-optic buried channel waveguides. The process of channel waveguide definition and fabrication through electric field poling is described and experimental results are presented. The fabrication, theoretical performance modeling and experimental evaluation of several integrated optic device structures, including phase modulators, directional couplers and Y-branch interferometers, are also reported.
