Paper Abstract

A ferroelectric single crystal fiber placed inside a microwave cavity is designed to perform pulse uptuning, downtuning, or reshaping by utilizing chirping effects on optical pulses traversing through it. For electrooptic modulator devices ferroelectric crystal fibers are of significant interest due to their high electrooptic coefficients and near-circular cross-sectional waveguide configuration. Single crystal fibers of strontium barium niobate grown by the laser heated pedestal growth method are shown to have high sensitivity to microwave electromagnetic field. Quantitative exploration for the influence of chirping on the performance of this modulator in a microwave cavity waveguide is carried out and reported.
