Abstract

Recent progress in electro-optie (EO) polymer materials and hybrid device designs have led to the demonstration of electro-optic modulators with unprecedented bandwidth (>100GHz) and drive voltage (̃ 0.5V). We will discuss our development of hybrid EO polymer/sol-gel waveguide modulators that achieve sub-volt drive voltages and superior photostability, while using a low-cost wet etch fabrication process. We also present a figure of merit that assists in the comparison of different EO po/ymer/cladding systems.
