Abstract:

An integrated-optic, polarization-selective phase modulator is disclosed. In a preferred embodiment of the invention a channel waveguide provides a path there through for polarized light having horizontal and vertical polarization components, and an electrode structure is disposed above the channel waveguide and is responsive to the application of a control voltage to the electrode structure for substantially phase modulating only the vertical component of the polarized
