Paper Abstract

We report on electrooptical modulation with a sub 1Volt sensititivity in a photonic crystal slab waveguide resonator which contains a nanostructured nonlinear optical polymer. This modulation effect is based on the electronic displacement polarization in a noncentrosymmetric medium (Pockels-effect) and is therefore inherently by more than three orders of magnitude faster than any other reported electrooptic modulation effect in nanophotonics. We also show concepts for extremely high and zero dispersion as well as for time delay in photonic crystal waveguides. Tuning can be achieved by hybrid combination of Si-based PCs and organic EO-materials.
