Abstract:

Because of ease of processing and low dielectric constant, electrooptical polymer is considered as a technology that is capable of fabricating low cost, complex structure high speed electrooptic devices. Over 100GHz modulation has been demonstrated. With the continuing improvement in electrooptical coefficient, EO modulators with drive voltage below 1V can be achieved in the near future. Using spincoating and photolithography techniques, complex electrooptic device structures have been demonstrated.
