Abstract:

Successive waveguide regions in a birefringent waveguide host electric fields oriented transverse to any optical wave propagated through the waveguide. A scheme of cascaded electrodes biased by voltages applied to the electrodes dictate instantaneous field polarity. Cascaded electrodes are sited in non opposed, on interleaved relation on opposite sides of a long electrode partially overlapping the waveguide. Patent application
