Paper Abstract

Polarization dependent integrated optical devices are becoming increasingly important in order to control polarization for coherent optical detection schemes, gyros, bidirectional communications using optical circulators, electro-optical switching and electro-optical phase modulation. Typically, integrated optical components are made by titanium diffusion into LiNbO3, ion-exchange or electric field assisted ion diffusion in glasses. The diffused ion concentrations determine the waveguide properties. Theloped to understand the physical limitations of these devices, and the necessary electrical characteristics that the KD*P modulators must have for use in the MSFC polarimeter. imaging systems. A near infra-red imaging polarimeter is used to measure the cubes. measurement using a known Stokes source. We discuss our work implementing computer-aided polarimetry using the Mueller calculus and applius to design waveguide structures for polarization integrated optical devices.
