Paper Abstract

We report an electro-optic effect in the copolymer, polyvinylidene fluoride-trifluoroethylene (PVF2-TrFE). The electro-optic effect in this material has a hysteresis which is related to its ferroelectric hysteresis. The electro-optic effect in combination with field dependent scattering can be used for electro-optic intensity modulation. We have demonstrated a modulation ratio of 13%. By adjusting the bias voltage, in-phase or out-of-phase modulation can be selected.
