Abstract

Recent progress in the development and application of highly active, highly thermally stable, and low optical loss electro-optic polymers is presented. Nonlinear optical chromophores with large molecular nonlinearities and high thermal and chemical stabilities are covalently attached to optical grade polyimides to form side-chain polymers with electro-optic coefficients as high as 45 pm/V and lifetime over 106 hours at 100 degrees Celsius. Cladding polymers with matching optical, mechanical, and electrical properties have been formulated and processed. Using a novel trench- and-fill process, integrated high speed electro-optic switches and modulators have been fabricated and tested. ©2005 Copyright SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering.
