Paper Abstract

Polarization controllable semiconductor optical waveguide material/devices have been design and studied using different type of strained quantum well heterostructures in the active region of the waveguide. A phase modulator devices has demonstrated a linear relative phase shift between the TE and TM polarizations with a V(pi ) of approximately 4 V. Another electro-absorption waveguide modulator structure has shown a bias tunable polarization mode so that the polarization properties can be actively controlled. We are also developing a monolithic integration techniques using selective epitaxial growth to achieve band gap variation within the same wafer and therefore, fabric integrated passive and active waveguide systems without high cost regrowth or device coupling.
