Paper Abstract

Base on the heat transfer theory, the thermal models of thermooptic variable optical attenuator based on side-polished fiber surrounded by thermooptic polymer with electrode inside were built. The finite element method has been used to compute and analyze thermal distributions of the thermooptic models. The thermal distributions of both the models with single stick electrode or helical electrode were analyzed in three directions. According to the analysis, the helical electrode is a suitable electrode structure for thermooptic variable optical attenuator based on side-polished fiber.
