Paper Abstract

Planar waveguides of poly-di-allyl-terephthalat (PDATP), a material with a high elasto-optic coefficient, are studied for the purpose to form active components. A special piezo quartz is embedded into a polymer matrix with the PDATP planar waveguide. By applying a voltage of 180 V a phase shift of 2(pi) is observed.
