Paper Abstract

A thin film waveguide of novel polymer Nylon 11 was fabricated and characterized. The active polymer waveguide film was formed by spin coating and poled by applying an electric field. The J-E and D-E curves with hysteresis characteristics of the Nylon 11 film was measured during poling, as well as the absorption spectrum of this waveguide film was observed by the FTIR before and after completing the poling. In addition, we have investigated the influence of the waveguide position and electrode structure on the optic axis distribution in the poled polymer film. The numerical results are given to establish a useful guideline for designing the poled polymer waveguide devices.
