Paper Abstract

An integrated optic polarizer/attenuator based on the selective removal of the TM component of guided light by a drop of mercury serving as a metallic cladding is presented. The position of the liquid metal with respect to the guide can be changed by many techniques, such as electro-wetting. Theoretical predictions and experimental results are discussed along with potential applications.
