Paper Abstract

LPG's sensitivities in the spectral shift and the strength change of the attenuation band to the surrounding medium are analyzed and the results are in close agreement with our experiments. According to the characteristics of LPG, we will introduce, for the first time to our knowledge, a novel all-fiber electro-optic (EO) polymer modulator that is based on the LPG. The materials used in the modulator are chosen and the processing is also given. The purpose of this analysis is to provide design insight and the feasibility of making such a device. Using the theory of multi-claddings optical wave-guide, we achieved the relationship between LPG’s resonant wavelength and the drive voltage.
