Paper Abstract

The selection process leading to the development of a guest- host electro-optic material based on an amorphous polycarbonate is described. The optical loss at 1300 nm of this material system is under 2 dB/cm, which is the confidence limit of the slab measurement used. A Mach- Zehnder Modulator fabricated using the push-pull poling technique has a low switching voltage of 1.2V.
